Houston Museum of Natural Science – Hall of Paleontology.

Since I was planning a trip to the museum, I decided to add a short stop at the park across the street for a photo op. Apparently, they wore Grace out, because she did NOT want to visit the dinosaurs.

Dd - HMNS 01 - SM

This was as close as she would get to them.

I took her upstairs to the “observation deck.”

Dd - HMNS 02 - SM

She still wasn’t into it.

I didn’t push it, but I thought the view was pretty cool.

Dd - HMNS 03 - SM

I DID get her to visit the Hall of African Wildlife (on the same floor as the observation deck).

Dd - HMNS 06 - SM

Dd - HMNS 05 - SM


She had a short chat with this duck….

Dd - HMNS 04 - SM

 …and explained to the antelope that the lion was trying to get them.

Ever the friend to animals.


Dinosaur Counting


Dd - Dinosaur Counting - SM

This is, once again, the same counting sheet/table that I made in Word that we used for Ant Counting and Bear Counting.


Dinosaur Excavation

Dd - Dinosaur Excavation - SM

Our dinosaur menagerie is growing. We now have THREE of these little guys.

Honestly, the only reason we don’t have more, is that I haven’t seen any more at the grocery store.


Stick Shapes

Dd - Shape Sticks 01

I attached small velcro squares to the ends of jumbo popsicle sticks and provided three shapes for Grace to make. (The pentagon shape is no in the photo.)
