We planned a short little road trip to add some states to all of our ‘lists’ & see some good friends!
Rockin’ Dad’s glasses & hats!
On our way into Pennsylvania!
Lunch at John’s Roast Pork! The kids had hotdogs & hamburgers, but the adults had…
Four dinosaurs outside of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University in Philadelphia
(Just have to brag about our Gilbert House Museum Pass again, because we got into this museum for free with our pass!!!)
The dioramas were incredible!!
Pretending to be an eagle
THE DINOSAUR HALL!!!!!
My little scientist drawing pictures of each dinosaur from the skeletons
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!
