The Dinosaur Museum

 Our last morning in Lehi, we went to the Dinosaur Museum at Thanksgiving Point. It was a lot of fun! They had a hands-on room with some fun things to play with.
 The kids had fun making parachutes.
 Then they put them in a wind tunnel that launched them into the air.
 It was pretty cool!

 They played with these magnets things, and Josh made a face.
They built some structures using Keva Planks.
Then we went on to the dinosaur portion of the museum.
We played with this sand and water table and built a pretty cool dam. Plus they had little plastic dinosaurs that I would hide in piles of sand for the kids to dig up.
Keeley loved playing in the water.
This shark is massive. Truly. I don't say this about many animals, but I am so glad these guys are extinct. I can't imagine ever even dipping a toe in the ocean with these brutes swimming around.
 We were all appropriately frightened.
 The last room was a giant sandbox. The kids loved it, but the air was full of sand.
Keeley was a good girl and had fun with us.
 Charlie playing with the sand.
 IJ uncovering some dino bones.
If you look at the side of the building directly over the green awning, you can see a sign that says Keeley's Ice Cream. We had to take a picture!
We left about mid-day and drove straight through to Phoenix. We would have stopped over for a night at Grammy Jo's, but they were living it up in Cancun at the time, so we stopped in to drop something off and then went on our way. It was a fun summer trip!

I'm jealous of all the Utah fun you guys had!! The dino museum looks super fun - how fun that your kids got to see so many cousins. And that Keeley's sign!!! How cool.

We LOVE the dinosaur museum! We always had a lot of fun there, especially when the older boys were little and we could scare them with the bones! :)
