One great thing about living here is that most of the cool museums have a free day each month. We recently took advantage of the free day at the Natural History Museum. I am learning that in order for Judah to have fun, it helps to: 1. pack lots of snacks. 2. try to mix a more exciting for a three year old activity (something hands on) with the other cool stuff (like looking at gemstones) so he doesn't get bored and whine.
He wasn't as into the dinosaurs as I expected him to be, but maybe when he gets a little older he'll dig the fossils. (Pun completely intended.)
One of my favorite parts (which I didn't photograph) was actually this kind of neat rodent house with a bunch of rats in it running around.
