Olivia meets Leonardo

Olivia and I had the opportunity to attend an opening night event for the Dinosaur Mummy exhibit at the Houston Musuem of Natural Science, which was rescheduled after Hurricane Ike. That’s her in the kids’ “Dig for Dinosaur Bones” area, with a life-size model of Leonardo behind her. This was her favorite part of the evening, though she also loved looking at the various dino skeletons, and of course Leonardo himself. I’m going to have to go back on my own so I can read all the displays and watch the videos – four-year-olds are not much for standing still. Even with that, it was a lot of fun for both of us.

I did not get the chance to go back on Saturday for a special event they set up for bloggers. Had I been able to, I’d have gotten to see The Bloggess with a chicken on her shoulder. How often does one get to say that? Anyway, more about the exhibit is here. Check it out.

  1. We recently took my two year old granddaughter to a life-size dinosaur-themed exhibit at the Austin Botanical Gardens and she really loved it.

    Bizarrely, too, her favorite animal by far in the San Antonio Zoo was the rhinoceros, which is about as dinosaur-like as you can get in the modern era.

    I’m not sure why the attraction, but kids love dinosaurs.
