Museum Maniacs

Debbie (Stacey's Mom) bought a family membership to the Dallas Museum of Nature and Science so we decided to take the boys today and check it out. The boys LOVED it and we had a wonderful family outing just the four of us. We were on sensory overload, there was so much to see and do. They have tons of interactive exhibits and an extensive children's area in the basement. We dug for fossils in the sand, made gigantic bubbles, grew, picked and sorted produce, milked a cow, rode horses, climbed a wall, drove a fire truck and fed turtles (I don't think this one is actually on the museums list of things to do, but Stacey II and III had a ball watching some gigantic turtles fight over cheese-its in the pond outside - sadly my camera battery had dyed before the trip ended, so no pictures of this particular activity). And on top of all that it was educational and free (well, to us a least). I have a feeling this will be the first of many trips. Thanks Big and Nannie!!
