Day At The Museum

We arrived at about 10:30 am, and everyone was full of energy :)
 This week is spring break for us, and since neither our schedule or finances allowed for a big trip we decided to have at least one special get away day. DH was able to get of Thursday and both Girls were free as well, so we packed a lunch and loaded up the van and started heading towards Denver for a long day at the Museum of Nature and Science. We have a Membership for the Museum so it could have been a free activity, but we decided to splurge and visit the special Pirate's exhibit and the Imax. We had a fun day and it gave us a chance to spend some family time together.
Walking down the Hallway of a spaceship to get to the Space exhibit.

A big, rotating Earth tested our knowledge of Geography

Here's some proof that we are a hot blooded family.After the space exhibit we were off to the IMAX for the 3D version of " The Hubble". It was amazing and awe- inspiring to see the greatness of God's creation through one of mans inventions. After the Imax we were all kind of hungry, so we decided to have lunch.

We came across this friendly looking fellow advertizing the " Real Pirates" exhibit. He was nice enough to let us take our picture with him ;)

Since we still had about 45 minutes until we could get into the Pirates exhibit, we decided to pay the Dinosaurs a quick visit.

After a most interesting time in the Real Pirates exhibit and a quick trip to the life exhibit we were all worn out and ready to head home.
