Fernbank with Jessica

Today, while Mommy was at the second day of her IB workshop downtown, Jessica and I took Elyse to Granny and Pa's house and then went to the Fernbank Museum of Natural History for a wonderful day together. We stayed there for four hours, looking at all the exhibits and galleries (except for a couple that were too scary). Jessica loved it! So did I.

Here are a few pictures from our day:

The T. Rex skeleton on the ground floor atrium:

The brontosaurus (I think) skeleton:

Jessica exploring what may have been a giant armadillo shell in the Extreme Mammals exhibit (we didn't always read the signs, so aren't sure what everything is):

An American Alligator--a real one, but a real small one--in a tank in the NatureQuest interactive explore/play area:

Jessica clowning around in a dugout canoe in NatureQuest:

Entering the burrow in NatureQuest:

Dancing with her tri-colored shadow in the Sensing Nature interactive exhibit:

Finally, resting with a turtle friend (not real, though) in NatureQuest, which we returned to for a while after lunch in Fernbank's cafe:
