Our mini-vacay in Houston with my cousin and my littles second cousins was jam packed with fun. On day 2 we all met down at the Museum of Natural Science. The littles, especially Micah, were excited to see the dinosaur bones and Abby was excited about seeing the butterflies.
They didn't have to wait long to see a dinosaur because there was a giant one waiting when we walked through the first doorway. Then we were surrounded when we headed into the dinosaur exhibit hall.
We had to pass the pendulum first though. As simple as it is, it's always fun to watch and wait as it gets closer and closer until it finally knocks down a block.
Between the dim lighting and the giant dinosaur bones, Abby couldn't decide if she wanted to be scared or excited to see them all. This T-Rex was named 'Stan' (yes each dinosaur had a name - I'm sure that serves some purpose some how) and from his bones the paleontologist were able to determine he had been in some fights, had broken ribs that had healed as well as a bite close to but not severing his spinal column that had started to heal before his death. Did you know you could tell all that from some bones? I had never thought about before reading Stan's information.
What have you been up to so far this summer?
