"A (wo)man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of (her)his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of beautiful God has implanted in the human soul."- Goethe

"Ine-o-sawls! Rawl!"

One of the activities we squeezed into our family vacation was a trip to a dinosaur tracks museum. Pepper loves dinosaurs. I mean, looooves those ferocious reptiles like they were her best friends. We play dinosaurs at home all the time. Chasing and growling and stomping hide-and-seek is our go-to game. So, she lit right up when she saw where we were and spent her time there stomping and growling and yelling, "Ine-o-sawls! Rawl!" (dinosaurs, growl):

 Please note: this museum is mostly vast expanses of tracks (aka, big chunks of rock) and "No Touching" signs, which is a little difficult for a 2-year-old dinosaur fan. However, the redeeming qualities for our toddler were the movie at the beginning and the interactive learning room filled with puzzles, coloring materials, and toys. (Yes, those dinosaurs are giving each other hugs. Dinosaurs are friendly creatures at heart.)

The redeeming qualities for parents were the vast knowledge available for gleaning and, quite frankly, the learning room too. See my pterodactyl rubbing? I should totally be an artist.

What activities in your family bode well with the adults as well as the kids?
