Monsters, science and education.

The Cisco Kid and Extreme have so much fun with life. It's great to watch them enjoying themselves. Jane and I took the boys to the Museum of Science and History where they are having a dinosaur exhibit. It's only going to be here through the summer. The Cisco Kid loves dinosaurs. Along with the dinosaurs they had a new exhibit called “The Body Within”. This was really cool. You are able to walk through the human body and see how it works. They have real organs in jars along with other information. It is very educational and for the queasy very gross. We then went to Friendship Park where the boys could ride their bikes. That only lasted about fifteen minutes when it started to lightning. Since we were already downtown, we then decided to go to the downtown library. I have heard it was an amazing library. I heard right!!! It was amazing. The three story library took up one city block. The children’s section was so awesome. Where we live we have a little county library, cute and quaint. It’s nothing like a big city library.

The museum had a couple of these guys walking around with masks on. I was minding my own business when I sensed someone behind me and at the same time Jane pointed behind me. I turned around and I saw this guy's big teeth glaring down at me. I have to admit, I did let out a little scream.
The live animal exhibit. The animal handler person put this turtle down in the middle of the room and walked away. Hummmm????? The boys loved it with no supervision.

The enterance to "The Body Within".

Friendship park
This was almost like a playground than a library.

A good story is always a great ending to a perfect day.

Tomorrow is "What would your children say?" Wednesday

  1. Oh my gosh! Where do you live? I want to go to that museum and that library and that park!! It all looks like so much fun! I have got to get my boys to a dinosaur museum! Looking forward to tomorrow!

  2. What a great post!! I knew you all would have a fun day because the museum has so many cool things there. I LOVE ALL of the pictures, but favorite are the ones with the tortoise walking about the room---we did not have that when we were there..he was in his cage. We went to the downtown library on a field trip with kindergarten, and I thought the same thing--it was so huge and had so many cool things to do. Thanks for sharing all of your great photos! So fun!

  3. I would love to go to some places like that. We live in a small town of 4,000 and have nothing even close to that. Very cool.

  4. Looks like a lot of fun! Awesome pictures!

  5. Oh looks like you all had a great time. Did the dinos move around? Where we went in Memphis they moved and made sounds. Bradon didn't like it much I guess it was to real for him. I have never seen a library that big very cool.
