While we were in Atlanta, a friend treated us to a morning at the Tellus Science Museum. Elijah has been wanting to go to a museum with dino fossils for a while. We didn’t tell the kids where we were going (we usually wait until the last minute to share anything with them so that if it doesn’t work out, there won’t be wailing and gnashing of teeth and much despair as a result). So… as we were driving up, we played twenty questions to guess where we were headed. Eventually Elijah guessed, “a paleontology place.” Close enough. Not only were there dinosaur fossils and facts (more on that later)… the kids actually got to dig for fossils and pan for gold! I highly recommend this museum if you are in the Atlanta area.
This “sauropod”… you have to call it that… was right as you go into the museum. Elijah was trying hard to take it all in. Abigail was excited too… but was probably more excited about my friend Mary’s baby who was also hanging out with us that day. Abigail was being a “super” helper pushing his stroller around!
In addition to the dinosaur stuff, the museum also had minerals, automobiles, space and a kids’ area. If Brian wasn’t training to be a counselor… I’d say he’d make a pretty good astronaut!
