A few days ago, we finally made it out to the new Perot Museum of Nature and Science. It’s a fancy new museum that opened in Dallas a couple of months ago, and we’ve been wanting to go for awhile…but the whole “everyone is sick all the time and we are never healthy enough to go anywhere in public” thing has kept us away.
That, and you have to buy tickets online and in advance because this place gets crazy busy and you know what I’m going to say about that, right?
Ain’t nobody got time for that!
So, having Papa and Gran in town inspired us to get out and do something awesome, and we decided a trip to the museum would be just that.
For a dinosaur-crazy kid, this was pretty much the Best Place EVER.
Without a doubt, our favorite part of the day was getting to see the giant dinosaur skeletons.
I don’t remember what kind of dinosaur this next one is, but it was big. And looked like it might have been cute and friendly-ish.
Do you ever have those moments when you look at your child, and you see without a doubt one of that child’s parents (be it yourself or not) reflected in their little face? This was one of those moments…when I looked at Jack and thought, “Oh my goodness, he is *so* his father’s child.” This was probably made more apparent by the fact that he was sitting on said father’s lap, but still.
And then, there was me (sick) and Claire (sleepy). We had fun, too.
So, a fun time was had by all. If you’re local (or visiting Dallas) and want to read more about the logistics of visiting the museum, and what you can expect, I have a post about visiting the museum up on Today’s Mama (oh yes, there are logistical concerns you need to be concerned about!).
