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.
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.
