It’s Spring Break and I’ve decided on a staycation because we were just in New Orleans a week and a half ago and there are so many things to do in NYC. Today was family day at the American Museum of Natural History.
While Grouchy Husband parked the car, we waited in the Oceans exhibit. The girls were scared of the scary black fish picture so they wouldn’t stand near it.
The girls really enjoyed the Amphibian and Reptile exhibit.
They thought the frog with the puffed out cheeks was so funny.
The snake skeleton was amazing.
They could not believe how big the Komodo Dragons were. 10ft and 200lbs!
The girls saw a dissected animal for the first time.
Baby had a hard time understanding that the exhibits were not alive so she would get scared sometimes.
My favorite exhibit was about bacteria and microbes in the body and digestive track.
The girls were really looking forward to the Butterfly Conservatory. When we were in New Orleans, we went to one and they had butterflies come onto their fingers.
They saw so many butterflies and planned on using their experience in New Orleans to have a butterfly come onto their fingers.
She even got Grouchy Husband to help her try…but no butterflies landed on her fingers. She left crying and it was heart-breaking.
We headed to see the dinosaurs and the Titanosaur, one of the largest dinosaurs and is 122-feet-long. Baby lost her museum spirit after the butterflies.
Even with the butterflies, we had a great day together.
Cheers to Family Day,
The Dumpling Mama xo
