Another Winter Afternoon – Natural History Museum

Ender has been really interested in skeletons lately.  I don’t even remember how we started talking about skeletons, but he is constantly asking to see pictures of skeletons on my phone.  A few Ender quotes:

“Can I see a fish skeleton?”

“I want to see my skeleton!”

“Mommy, my skeleton is inside my body!”

So, when my parents wanted to get together this past weekend, I thought Ender would really enjoy a trip to the natural history museum about an hour from our house.

The trip went well.  We had Japanese for lunch and Atlas tried sushi (Ender refused all food).

Ender was pretty sick still at this point and he ended up falling asleep at the museum and getting carried around.  But overall, I’d say the trip was a success and I’d do it again.

This is how I feel about them - the whole world is theirs if they want it!

Ender loves owls.  It was really neat for him to see an owl skeleton.  He was also excited about the owl egg.

My mom bought the boys each a gift.  Ender's was the ice cube tray which was taking a ride in the dugout canoe.  He'd get really mad if you took it out.

This was the possum display.  I love it.  I can't explain why.
