natural science and history museum

this museum at fair park came highly recommended by a high school friend of mine living in dallas. he has always been a super funny guy, so when he mentioned it, i knew it wouldn't disappoint. the first exhibit was about homes and architecture and had this neat mongolian tent and a place for the kids to build their own houses.

the next exhibit had a prehistoric theme, complete with huge dinosaur skeletons. but even more cool, was the excavation sites.

vivian got right to work.

while bauer surveyed what tools would be best for the job.

"mommy, i found a bone!" that's great vivian let's move on to the next thing...

ummm....so this was bauer's fav. maybe he wasn't too excited about moving on...

but he soon found happiness at the water table.

as did his sister!

next it was off to explore the tunnels of ground hogs.

and daddy, well he went to explore...well.....there is no nice way to say this. vomit. yep, folks there was a thing about vomit. and here is the picture to prove it!

and to continue with the human body theme....here i am...the human bogie. i guess it is safe to say, clif and i enjoyed the museum, too!

but the most fun was yet to be had....this place had a firetruck!
with VERY highly skilled firepeople!!

"how can i help you, mam?"

"um, mr. fireman...my husband got his head stuck in his nasa helmet. can you please help?"

"don't worry, we'll just saw him out." says the trusty construction worker.

"i'm your girl!"
seriously, the best part by FAR was the bubbles. i could have stayed there all day!

and the kids kind of liked it too!
