New Year’s Day was spent at the Chicago Field Museum. It was a VERY busy day. The museum is very large and we purchased the big package with a 3-d movie and 3 special exhibitions so we felt like we had to see it all. We did see a lot. Josh enjoyed the hall of dinosaurs, with Kae’s favorite being Sue the T-Rex (although he didn’t want his picture taken with her). Ted’s favorites were the Extreme Mammals exhibition and the 3D movie Ice Age. I enjoyed the Hall of Gems which included an opalized plesiosaur vertebra—which Ted thought was very cool–and the mummies–which Ted was afraid of. Jensen just like having the opportunity to get out and explore!
