We decided to go today, since it was a FREE day!!! And I had to pick up a craigslist find, so two birds.
It's a 3 hour trip for us each way, so we left about 8 this morning. It started out pretty sunny!
I wished it would last. We got there about 11:15 (they opened at 10AM) The parking garage was full...as were the closer lots, according to the sign. I was a bit sad to have to park outside, I knew the rain was coming and the garage with covered skyway would have been so nice!! But that was ok!
|Isabelle's favorite thing at the museum...lol! Silly girl!|
|Why didn't they chip his nose?|
From here we had lunch in the food court. Oh my goodness!! It was SOOO packed. The ladies cleaning were helping find tables. One was found for me, then a lady and 2 girls sat there. It had 9 seats, and neither of us minded, so we sat together. Food was ok, nothing to write home about.
Then we were off to explore!!! The Treasures (mummy, sunken ship, and terra cotta warriors) exhibit was our first stop, since our unit is Pirates. They have an exhibit for the ship that was discovered as Cpt. Kidd's. Well, it was WAY to crowded to see hardly anything!! Isabelle did get to play as an archaeologist for a bit. Poor thing kept being rushed by kids and families RUSHING! She wanted to read, but everyone was so pushy. I kept taking her back so she could read.
|Gabriel really liked the trains!|
|Poor thing was SO done. He was stuck in his stroller the whole time.|
|Just happy to be out!!|
We will likely return next month....on a Tuesday! :)
