Morning at the Museum

Last week Megan and I went to Raleigh to the Museum of Natural History. Megan was really excited to see the dinosaurs, but she also got to see so much more! She touched live turtles, saw snakes, fish and other bugs, and saw lots of cool, hands-on exhibits. I could barely get her to leave the arthropod room. We had a lot of fun and were there almost 4 hours! Before we left, she picked out 2 little stretchy snakes from the gift shop to bring home with her, and she has given them a proper home in a small basket in the living room!

Stopping for a snack in the dino footprint:

Hiding in the grass in the arthropod exhibit: (She told me she was a caterpillar and was pretending to eat the grass!)

Touching the big black beetle with hairy legs:

Feeling the animal furs in the Discovery Room: (In this room she also got to see a big beehive full of bees!)
