The weather cooperated and the boys played outside most of the time early in the week. But by Wednesday it was clear we needed something to do! So on Thursday, I packed the kids up and we ventured into the heart of Atlanta and explored Fernbank Museum of Natural History.

Fernbank was amazing! There was so much to do. So, we did what everyone does when they get to an amazing museum, filled with lots of fun things to do and see, we hit the vending machines because the boys were STARVING! Well, it did take us 30 minutes to get there, so they hadn't eaten in that long!
|Yum, honey buns!|
While the boys ate their Honey Buns, we looked admired the display in the Great Hall. There were all sorts of casts of dinosaurs. Including the world's only fully mounted Argentinosaurus, the largest dinosaur ever classified (you can see part of the tail in the picture). The picture here is of Giganotosaurus. And above us there were all sorts of casts of flying reptiles. It was very cool!
We spent most of our time in the Mythical Creatures special exhibit. Very cool! The exhibit explored the myths behind air, sea and land mythical creatures. Most of the pictures we have are from this exhibit. At one point, Sam grabbed the camera and took most of the pictures. See if you can spot his "favorite" picture.
And what display about mythical creatures would be complete with out Pokemon! Josh was very excited to see this sign.
By the time the IMAX was done, the museum was starting to get crowded! We did venture to a few more exhibits. There was a really cool exhibit called "Sensing Nature." We spent quite a bit of time there.
