Museum Trip Excerpt:

It was a cloudy afternoon on Ahway Island, but Andy, Allie, and Owen were nevertheless full of energy. Today marked their next adventure to the Ahway Island
Science Museum! The three friends loved the museum a lot. The last time they had been here together, it was their first trip without any grown-ups. The trio had only
been able to see one exhibit that day, so here they were again to see what else the museum had in store.

Upon stepping through the grand entrance doors, the kids found themselves enveloped in the museum’s large foyer, with its marble floors and large pillars. They
took a moment to appreciate the artwork on the walls – there were many beautiful paintings that depicted various plants and animals.

Today’s Meditation: Picture floating in the safe and comforting waters of a tranquil pool.
