A night at the Museum

Last night we went to MOSH and had a Cub Scout Camp - In.  The boys were all so excited spend the night at the Museum.  It was a great experience. We had the whole Museum to our selves.  We had scheduled events.  First the boys had some play time, then we saw a planetarium show, followed by pizza.  After Pizza we all went up to the roof top and looked through a telescope at Jupiter.  The views up there were really great. Next stop are the animals.  They had the turtles and possum running around for the boys to pet them.   Then off to the science room.  This was really fun.  It was called thunder and lightning experiment.  The scientist showed how lightning is charged and how it travels, how clouds are made using boiling liquid added to liquid Nitrogen, the impact of thunder using a Hydrogen filled balloon and making it explode when heat is applied.  Then there was some free Museum time and the boys ran all over playing.     At 10:30 p.m. they played the movie…Night at the Museum II.  After watching the movie a couple of boys got a little spooked.  The Cisco Kid was seeing lights flash on him and he got scared.  One other boy got scared of the life size astronaut suit that was in the museum.  The movie really got to them.
They finally went to sleep at around 1:00 a.m.

 This was the only dinosaur left at MOSH. All the other are gone. They have a recycling exhibit in place of it.
