$2 Tuesday-Thanksgiving Point

Finally finishing up August blog post, so bare with me there is a lot of pictures :) On the last Tuesday of the month, we took advantage of the older kids being in school and two dollar Tuesday at Thanksgiving point. We visited The Museum of Ancient Life and Farm Country, both for much less than what we would have paid if we went not on a discount day. We did have more of a crowd because of it, but it was still a very fun day with my kids. 

First on Carson to do was turn back time to dinosaur time :)
 It was fun to see his couriosity, because he has never really been into dinosaurs much. 
 A paleontologist hard at work. 
 Paleontologist have lots of tools, more than I even imagined. 
 Throughout the museum they had touch and feel objects that they could interact with, a fossil was the 1st on the trip. 
 I loved how it flowed through all the different time periods in order, and even through time when it was just stars :)
 We found a dinosaur cave, and played around for a little bit. 
 An interactive Dinosaur computer movie.
 It is fun to see just how many species there really was, and I am sure there are even more that we have not even discovered yet!
Water creatures 
 Ancient crocs, I am sure they were just as dangerous way back when. 
 Wouldn't want to be a a battle with this dinosaur with the spikes. 
 I love how it was set up throughout the museum there was places that the kids could play an explore with dinosaurs, this one they got to put a triceratops together. 
 These are massive, can't get it all in one picture!
 Carson the paleontologist. 
 Even stuff for the little kids too, Sydni had fun playing with this plastic dinosaur more like trying to put it in her mouth. 
 The verdict is Carson only came up to just above the dinosaurs ankle bones :) 
 And an even smaller Sydni
 I am sure this was his favorite interactive exhibit, playing in the sand with dinosaurs. 
 What mom?
 He saw the computer and immediately jumped on to give it a spin. 
 It wouldn't be a trip to a dinosaur museum if you didn't get a chance to ride on a dinosaur right?!
 On to the T-Rex fight :)
 It is hard to imagine these creatures, but they are fascinating to me. 
 Wow, not only the dinosaur's where big, but so were the fish!
Mom, look!
We had some crazy creatures way back when.
Ocean life, man can I say I am glad we don't have sharks that big anymore!
Our last stop work as a paleontologist, Carson had lots of fun at the Ancient Life Museum. 
Dinosaur digging is a lot of work, so we had to grab a bite to eat, at least the kids, I was on Take Shape for Life at the time. 
After lunch we were off to the farm. The things I do for my kids, my eyes were burning and I was sneezing the entire time we were on the farm. They had lots of fun so that is all that matters! 
Sydni wasn't afraid of the little ponies, she was very afraid of the huge Clydesdale though. 
You would have thought she was really hurt the way she freaked out when i pushed her up to the clydesdales, she burst into tears. And promtly moved her back and then she was just fine. I guess we will need to try that again next year :)
Carson loved the pigs, it took me awhile to get him away from them!
Look who is in the county jail, what did he do this time?
Our resident Sheriff 
The best pictures I could get of the 3 of us, on our horse ride around the farm, they loved it. 
It wouldn't be a farm if there wasn't a place where we could grow, pick, and harvest right?
It didn't matter if her legs were tiny and she just couldn't quite make it on the tractor she was determined, luckily mama helped her on.
Our two little tractor drivers, love these two little farmers. 
We have our crops planted, next step, let them grow
Ready to Harvest and put them on the truck!
 Now they are on the truck ready for the super market :)
 The final animals to check out before we left the farm where the cows, wouldn't be a farm without them right?!
 But we couldn't leave without a ride pony ride, we almost didn't make to the front before we needed a bathroom breaks, but proud of my little man he was able to hold it until his ride was over :)
Lyla was the pony of choice, because we needed to give the little one to a smaller child. 
 He sure did enjoy himself.
Despite more people since it was a two dollar, I am glad we took the day and enjoy each other. I sure do love these kiddos of mine!
