On Friday afternoon, I took the kids to the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum for the first time. We went with some friends, and it was a really good time.
The museum was much bigger than I anticipated, and it had some pretty neat exhibits. There was an entire dinosaur fossil hall, which I was not expecting to find in Canyon, Texas. I also particularly liked this huge recreation of the lighthouse rock formation in the Palo Duro Canyon. I only got a picture of a corner of it. The entire thing was probably 5 to 6 times larger.
The boys are holding on tightly to their scavenger hunt stamp cards. We completed the museum hunt, and we got free PPHM water bottles as a prize.
In this picture, Connor is trying hard to figure out why anyone would ever want to ride side saddle. He said, "Half of this saddle is missing." Oh, history. What fun!
