Highlights from Thursday:
Buddy Davis day! We planned our trip to coincide with a day when Buddy Davis would be at the museum. We enjoyed the workshop where we learned from Buddy how to draw and to sculpt pteranodons, as well as gaining knowledge about pteranodons and other dinosaurs. Later in the day we attended a concert by Buddy, which was a treat.
In the Dragon Legends Theater, a video about dragons and dinosaur runs on a loop. The theater is small, cozy, and a perfect quiet spot for nursing. We watched the video once as a family, and I enjoyed it multiple additional times throughout our visit. If you ever visit the Creation Museum with a nursling, the Dragon Legends Theater is your friend.
The Dinosaur den is an area of the museum showcasing a multitude of dinosaur sculptures (the lion’s share of which were sculpted by Buddy). The family checked it out while I fed the little fella.
Our initial tour through the bookstore was on Thursday, prepping for a purchasing visit that would come just before our departure. So much fascinating stuff.
On our way back to the campground Thursday night, we stopped at “our” grocery store – groceries for dinner/Friday, dark chocolate (with no dairy!) and sushi for a treat.
A farkle game with the four oldest Blessings was a fun end to the day, though we were all shivering by the time we concluded the game. The night-time temps were in the low to mid 40s and we were glad for our blankets. Andrew slept in many layers in “bed” with Jonathan and I. He probably stayed warmer than I, but I was glad we could keep him warm and comfy.
(Trying out the WP slideshow feature below… I like it except that it doesn’t look like you can click on individual pics to see them in a larger size. Any thoughts on picture format?)
