In which we go to the Natural Sciences Museum
And then I took the kids to see the Natural Sciences Museum. It's right next door to the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, and I got into it for free with my COSI membership as well. So we basically spent a day museum-hopping.
This is more or less a dinosaur-related photo dump:
This one is a mosasaurus, better known around here as "that one that ate the Indominus Rex at the end of the new Jurassic Park movie."
This thing where Lex puts his head in the mouth of vicious animals has definitely become a thing.
The kids spent about an hour here, excavating dino bones. We stayed so long that Lex took his shoes off and really made himself at home.
And, after the dinosaurs, we saw other things that little boys love. Like mummies:
"I am an archer, riding my turtle into battle. Very slowly."
"I'm riding my slow turtle to battle, too, but I have a sword."
"No, wait Mommy. I have an idea for an epic pose."
And finally, this is a Hercules Beetle. For reference, that's Connor's hand. For reference, Connor's hands are almost as big as mine now. Say it all together now. Eeek! Eeew. Gross.
