Dinosaur Day

After soccer games yesterday, the kids and I headed over to the Natural History Museum for Dinosaur Day. C had to wear his T-Rex shirt in honor of our adventure.

They had a chance to feel real fossils and talk to a volunteer who explained how they grind down the rock to get to them.

They made coelophysis masks. Coelophysis is New Mexico's state fossil. I should post a picture of B's finished one. It was very cool. He had to finish it at home, because his brother and sister were getting impatient with him.

And here the kids are working in a pretend dig for fossils. It was complete with hats. Fun times!
