Houston Museum of Natural Science

Our Spring Break Adventure this year took us to Houston. We decided to do the Houston City Pass, which got us in to 5 popular Houston attractions for one pretty reasonable price. Since I was traveling the first part of Spring Break, that meant we had only 4 days to see 5 attractions! Good thing our boys like to stay busy! Melody and Evie joined us on our adventure so the boys got lots of cousin time too which was probably their favorite part.

Our first stop was the Museum of Natural Science.

Oh bless those museum staffers/docents. Our excessively curious, articulate children asked them all.the.questions. They were so patient and wonderful!

You know what makes dinosaur skeletons more fun? Pretending to be each of those dinosaurs!

We took a museum break for a picnic lunch in the park, and some much needed running and yelling time for all the littles.

We even had a cute squirrel join us for our picnic!

Back into the museum for a tour of ancient Egypt, where we encountered another delightful docent who the kids monopolized with their questions for the next 15 minutes. Mummies are fascinating!

As usual, Benjamin succumbed to his afternoon nap!

Once we explored every nook and cranny of the museum, we called it a day, but not before a roll down the big hill!

Technically, Jackson was the only one to actually master the rolling.

We met up for dinner with two of my oldest friends, Liz and Ashley and their families. We've come a long way since we were just three girls hanging out! It was so good to see them!

That night, we stayed in a hotel right in the middle of the city. These boys (all 4 of them) would have looked out the window all night if I had let them!

We had to get some rest though because the Zoo was up next!
