Last weekend we decided to drive to another town and visit a science museum. They were having a dinosaur baby exhibit and MissyMiss still loves dinosaurs. So we packed up the kids and headed out in the morning. The pic below is one that I took from the car on the way there. It was a very rural and beautiful drive.
We got to the museum just as it opened. They had a very cute dinosaur egg exhibit that both kids liked. They both had great fun digging through the rubber chips to find the eggs. That is Daddy with Bubby.
Inside the museum there were a lot of interesting displays. MissyMiss was very interested in having the display cards read to her and watching the little videos that accompanied the displays. Bubby was not so interested in that. Daddy and I took turns...one of us did the educational things with MissyMiss and the other kept Bubby from destroying the place. The museum had a cute dinosaur room with little toy dinosaurs that kept Bubby busy for a while. They also had bins in which to dig for fossils. Once you found a fossil you could put it under the microscope to look at it. You were also allowed to take it home. They looked like little rocks, but if you looked very close you could see markings on them. They also had dinosaur dig sandboxes outside. Here is MissyMiss uncovering the fossils.
Once we were done at the museum, we headed to the downtown area to browse the shops. They also had a little playground there...here is one of the kids together. I love how MissyMiss has her arm around Bubby and he has his hand resting on her leg. :)
We also stopped for lunch at a local mexican restaurant. The food was very fresh and delicious! Here is a pic of Daddy's burrito. They made a neat design with the sauce and sour cream.
It was almost too pretty to eat...almost. :)
