Yesterday our daughter, son-in-law, 2 year old granddaughter, and our nearly 7 year old grandson and I drove into Los Angeles, to the natural history museum. Grandpa Art didn't go as he has a back issue right now (severe arthritis). He elected to stay home and rest.
We left about 7:30 here in the desert and arrived there about 9:45. We got a convenient parking space and headed into the museum, which had just opened at 9:30 a.m. Good thing we got there early! By noon, there was a line out the door to enter! We had it mostly to ourselves all morning!
The kids had a blast and the grandson was busy READING (yes, he is reading!) nearly every sign there! They have a lot of hands-on exhibits for kids, and he was busy touching those. He got to watch a scientist working in the dino lab, he got to touch replicas of fossils, and a coyote skin, and touch crystals. The two year old just RAN everywhere! She's high energy, FOR SURE!
I bought him some nice presents in the gift shop and let him take home a dinosaur tooth replica.
It was a fun, but exhausting day!
