The Heard Natural Science Museum and Wildlife Sanctuary

We have a little science museum in our very town, and every year during the fall they have a dinosaur exhibit on one of their trails.  I went years ago as a nanny, but we hadn't taken the kids there.  We had dinosaur week earlier in the month for Kindergarten, so I thought this would be a fun little tie in.  So last weekend when the temps were just slightly cooler, we headed out to explore.

Olivia loved it!

Logan was friendly with this one, but he was actually pretty scared of the large ones that moved and made noises.  Which I had anticipated. :)

Of course the T-Rex was the favorite.

After the dinosaur trail, we spent some time in this little Heritage village.  Both of the kids loved this little area, and probably could have stayed much longer.  But it was getting warm and we wanted to see more.

We walked through a little animal sanctuary, and did about a half mile of another trail (there are multiple trails!) before Olivia started complaining of being tired.

So we headed back inside to cool off and check out all of the things inside.

 There were so many things that either went along with themes we already studied, or will go along with themes in the future!

We plan on getting a membership here as well!  Not only is it educational, but there are also so many trails to explore.  True, wooded trails like we are use to in Ohio.  Plus, when the kids get a little older they have homeschool classes that you can take as well!  It's so fun to have this only 10 minutes from our house!
