Keeping Our Minds Sharp this Summer

After such an enjoyable and educational experience at the Majestic View Nature Center learning about Butterflies, we thought we'd try out Family night at the Nature & Science Museum.  We had a great time exploring different areas of the museum.  This may have been the first time we've been to the museum where we DID NOT visit the Discovery Zone! 

As soon as we walked in to the museum, we were greeted by a walking, moving dinosaur skeleton that gobbled Lillian right up.  Jak was seriously terrified of the thing!  He hid behind my leg for quite a while and squealed with concern that it was going to eat his sister!
 He was much happier decorating and flying paper airplanes.  It turns out, his Daddy is quite the paper airplane folder.  I love how Lillian is admirably looking up to her daddy in this picture. 

 We learned about various animals who fly and how they are able to soar vs fly.  The kids enjoyed acting out the parts - and they especially loved it when paper confetti fell from the sky.  Everything is more enjoyable when you get to act like a fool, right?
