Our second child and her husband called us on their cell phone to tell us

they were having a great time on their snowmobile trip into Old Faithful Geyser
in Yellowstone Park.

They posed in front of the live web cam so we could see them wave in real time.

While they were there we took their kids and some other cousins
 to see the dinosaur exhibit at a nearby museum.

 There were plenty of interactive displays. 

 Here the girls are learning about how a T-Rex’s arms work.

 The guys liked the tools used by the paleontologists.

 The star of the show was a full sized Tyrannosaurus Rex named Sue.

JD thought she was awesome.  His statement was, “RrrAaheerrrrr!!!”

 He ran from display to display…

 …growling and roaring at every boney monster.

 His verdict:  this museum was NOT boring.

We're planning our spring break with the kids to D.C. I can't wait for the Smithsonian Museums.

Great kids! Loads of fun I am sure- I have gramma envy!
I remember when Sue was found! She is looking great and way more comfortable!

Mama Zen said...

What adorable pictures!

Is Sue a traveling exhibit? We had a huge T-Rex named Sue visit our museum.

Leenie said...

Mamma Zen: This is Sue's second visit to our part of the world. She really gets around.

He's right! There is no such thing as a boring museum. :-) I have loved them all.
