Joey has been wanting to visit this museum for a while now. So, Friday night I looked up the Sam Noble Museum of Natural History and found out that Saturday there was free admission paid for by Chesapeake. Perfect! So, we planned out the day. I have to be honest, I REALLY did not want to go.
I’m not much for museums or history… I know, I know, but I’m not! ha!
However, we ended up having a great time… MYSELF included!
I’ll let the pictures tell the story….
Stopped at 7-11 for gas and drinks. While waiting, Jaxon practiced a little sign language!
We finally arrived in Norman at the SNOMNH::
There was a LOT to see and do::
First on the to-do list “talk to the dum dum’s” – apparently something Jax picked up from Night at the Museum – So… he got to fulfill his only request for the day::
We were kind of in awe
Check out the size of that skull – it made the Guiness Book!
Jax could not believe this was a dino foot::
This guy was HUGE – Seriously! Can you even imagine being on earth at the same time? WOW!!
To put it into perspective – Here is Jax next to his THIGH bone!
Next Stop – The Discovery Center (anything you can reach, you can touch)::
Jaxon got to do a dino bone dig:
We got to try on funny masks::
After playing in there and opening EVERY drawer, we headed upstairs… Here’s the best family picture we got! Sorry Joe!
This was my favorite part of the museum – Human or Chimpanzee? There was a series of ways that you can compare yourself to a chimp…. very interesting!
My favorite pic of the day::
A Virus:: – AKA a great way to
inform scare my child about the importance of hand washing!
The boys looking at a dead fly or so
I obviously took A TON of pictures… Click below to see a few more::
On the way home we stopped at Gaylord Memorial Stadium to show Jaxon where OU plays football! He was in awe!!
The field looks so different during off season::
Well, if you’ve made it this far, I’m impressed!
So… the moral of the story is … Museum’s aren’t that bad if you’re with the ones you love!
