"More to find than can ever be found"

- "Circle of Life" by Elton John

The next day we took the kids to The Museum of Ancient Life at Thanksgiving Point. This museum was super awesome. The pictures I took don't do it justice.

They had a lot of areas that were hands on. Here they're playing in the flood area where the sand has water running through it.
There was also an area with toy dinosaurs, books about dinosaurs and dinosaur dress-up clothes. There was also a sandy area where you could uncover buried bones with a brush. There were also several computer stations that had kid-friendly programs. The kids had a blast!
At the end of the day we went and saw their 3-D film about dinosaurs. Grayson was scared the whole time and made sure I had my arms wrapped tightly around him. But he would not take his glasses off! I kept suggesting it so maybe it would be less scary, but he insisted on wearing them! I think he was the only kids who wore them the entire time. As Jeff would say, "what a stud." :)
