Dinosaurs

Thanks to blogging we got to go here...The Life and Science Museum in Durham. We really love this place. There is endless loads of fun. And since I have blogged about it before we got invited for the opening of the brand new Dinosaur Trail...

At first Ashlyn was very concerned that these were real dinosaurs. After I convinced her otherwise she was pretty happy to be there. Ashlyn and Dylan asked if they could sit on every dinosaur, sadly this was the only one they could sit on.
As you can see, Corbin is asking (but not verbally, Argg!) for something to eat above!

Now If Morgan King were here he could name all these dinosaurs. Each plaque had their name (all names were ones I had never heard before and could barley pronounce) as well as a few facts. Now If the kids had gone slow enough for me to read them I might be able to tell you some interesting facts about each dinosaur.
We all really enjoyed it!

Just a few more pictures for our friends, the Coxes, who moved last week and missed the exhibit! They introduced us to this wonderful place!
We also enjoyed some of our favorite parts of the museum. The weather exhibit...
Blowing "clouds into each other's faces...

The endless amount of noise to be heard at the chimes and drums...

The water pumps...
And the place that we could literally spend all day...
The remote controlled sailboats. There is much much more that we love but didn't have time to see!

I've always thought about going there, but haven't yet b/c I need to just break over and spend the cash, but I don't want too. I've heard it's awesome!!

You are always doing such fun things! I'm glad your mom sent my blog address. I've peeked in on you guys a few times. I know that if you lived out here we would definately be friends! When you are here next week I hope that we can get together.
