It occurred to me the other day, that I have never taken Francesca and Victoria to a museum. Pretty sad. Elliot was signed up for every class, learned Spanish, and attended symphonies before he was five, but number five and six are getting jipped. Francesca is going to be four soon, so I had to get cracking.
Sure, taking five kids to a museum is a little challenging, but I couldn't let that stop me.
First, we packed a few snacks.
We went to the Museum of Natural History in Atlanta. I practically passed out at the cost. It was actually cheaper to get an annual pass, so at least we can come back!
Cute rubber snakes.
At first, the "babies" (I'm not sure how much longer I can get away with calling them that) were a little stunned. Those are some pretty big teeth.
After a little while though, they really got curious. I loved watching the looks of wonder on their faces.
Victoria kept shrieking and pointing.
Of course, one of the first things we had to do was eat, because, you know, we hadn't eaten in over 5 minutes.
This area was all hands on experiments.
Catherine's favorite exhibit was the tornado. She is kind of interested/worried by natural disasters in general. She always wants to check to make sure that our smoke detectors are working.
Solemn Victoria. Though lately, she has been giggling alot more and we realized that she has dimples. They are very hard to catch on camera though.
The kids' area was amazing!
I won't mention the fit someone threw when they learned that we couldn't take the starfish home.
Victoria is getting a lot braver about letting me put her down out in public.
So, the next time any of you are in Atlanta, give me a call and we can all go see the dinosaurs, cause we are cool now and have a pass.
(Snack break #3)
But you all better bring your own snacks, because we certainly didn't bring enough!
