A Day at the Museum

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 of this:: 
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
me
thing::
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::

Not that I’m ready for summer to be over – but these pics make me excited for OU Football season!!!

And LAST but not LEAST… my favorite picture from the day::

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!

  1. I love the first picture! I too am excited for football season, the cool weather, the lazy Sundays, blue and silver all around…BUT, it does mean the start of school, and that's always a little bittersweet.

  3. You can tell that Jax is so into the museum thing! Maybe we should plan a trip to a museum during our girls weekend. 😉 Maybe not, lol! I don't really like museums either, although you probably could have guessed that since we are alike in so many other ways. I love that picture of Jax and Joe! So cute.

  7. Bill has actually gotten to sit and stand in the north end zone when he received his PhD from OU. The had a fantastic fireworks display after graduation.

  8. I agree with you too…I am not a big museum fan. I've learned they really aren't that bad but thats just usually not my favorite thing. This one looks pretty cool though…maybe we'll have to check it out sometime!
