We Love Museums

Yesterday, we took Skye to the Museum of Ancient Life in Lehi. My parents watched Jack so we could spend the day just with Skye. As Lance said, we wanted her to know that we still love her and think she's special even though we have to spend so much of our time now taking care of Jack. The first room we went into was the discovery room. It was so much fun! I felt like I was a little kid too! There were so many neat things to look at, do, and experiment with.
 There were other things Skye liked a lot like this cave!
 The dinosaur skeletons were very impressive! And very large!

 We played with toy dinosaurs, as if we don't do that every single day at home anyway!

 Skye's just barely taller than it's foot!
 Here we are in front of a bunch of different skulls--some ancient and some from animals we know and see today.
 According to Skye, this is her pet dinosaur who likes being with other dinosaurs so she stays at the museum  to be with the other dinosaurs.
This was another favorite of Skye's. She played here for quite awhile. One of the things I love about her is how good she is at making friends. I hope it is a quality that will always stay with her.
We also saw this really cool 3-D movie about pterosaurs (flying dinosaurs). It was a really fun day. I'm glad we got to do something fun with Skye and something fun for us! If anyone is looking for a great place for their kids and themselves, I would definitely recommend this place!

It sounds like fun- I wish my kids liked dinosaurs so that the trip would be worth it for us. :) That's great that you had an outing just the parents and Skye- I'll bet she loved it! (And your mom loved being with Jack too, I'm sure)

Yes, Jessica, we did have fun having Jack all to ourselves for the day!
I guess I'm going to have to plan a trip down to Thanksgiving Point soon so I can be a kid again!
