Conversing with the T. Rex

(Ezra has been wanting to go to the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, because of the T-Rex there. The bones had been discovered by a man named Barnum Brown & was called Barnum’s T-Rex. We had read a book about Barnum Brown, which led to Ezra’s fascination with that particular skeleton. However, this T-Rex was also technically Barnum’s as it was made from the same casts as the one in the NY museum!!!)

A dream come true for Ezra!!!

They had a green screen you could stand in front of & then watch yourself interact with dinosaurs. My kids were mesmerized! 

 

From Philadelphia, we drove to our friends’ house in New Jersey. We had a great evening visiting & catching up on life!
