Some quick phone pics:
How many hours could we stand here and watch loose change roll into this bin? I would bet, several.
When I was a kid, they had an area where you could go to "dig" for fossils. You'd find a little tiny fossil and you could tape it to a piece of paper and take it home. No longer! They have a larger digging area now, and the kids had fun. It just wasn't the same :)
This is what I like to see. Rowen and Maryn, courting.
Of course we'd find a stage and put on a show or two while we were here! That's just how we roll.
See Reise's face? In the next split second, Reise started to cry because no one wanted to perform her number, and we decided it was time to leave.
Have we talked about the Stringbeans song we're listening to about Nebraska? I think we have. There's a part in it... "Our Woolly Mammoth fossil, is the largest ever found..." so, we got to see that. And, we ran across a Meadowlark, which is the state bird (and also featured in the song), so that was fun!
It was a great morning, and we'll go back. There's a Planetarium there, and they have shows on the weekends. Ryleigh is really interested in outer space right now, and I think she would love it. It's super affordable for the whole family to go, so I think we just might do that very soon.
In the meantime, we're going to be making fossil prints out of coffee grounds and flour. I love homeschool! :)
