AZ Museum of Natural History (Round Two)

I should probably donate some money to the culture pass program at the library because I love it so much. I snagged one for the dino museum again and invited some of our friends to come with since the rest of the city was starting their first day of school.

J made friends with a volunteer. I think I may have to volunteer at a museum someday when my kids are grown. It seems like fun.

I really do try and tame her hair, but after I wet it down and comb it, J scrunches it with her hands and makes it look like that. I just can't bring myself to cut the curls.

One of the displays was under construction and I thought it was interesting to see the process. Here is a small scale of the mural the artist was doing.

Here is how the painting is manifest on a larger scale, along with close-ups of inspiration.

They hadn't removed the hanging models from the old display yet so this turtle is flying.

Of course J gravitated towards the fish tanks. She chose her outfit, in case you wondered.

 She is getting really good at puzzles.

M didn't really care for them.

The twins had to leave before the fossil excavating, but J and K had a really good time brushing off fossils.

I'm pretty sure I would go nuts in a small town. I love having all of these resources and adventures to go on. Especially since they are free.

You wouldn't go nuts, you would give all the other mothers complexes because of all the activities you set up though. I am glad you get to do all these things as a mom that you didn't get to do as a kid.

I love the museum! If you are looking to save money on all the fun local venues I recommend getting a PogoPass. It's saved our family a lot of money.
