It's Wednesday already...

This week seems to be flying by. The boys were out of school on Monday and we had a nice day. We met friends for a nice breakfast and then went to the Aquarium (yes again). We spent a couple of hours there and then Connor talked us in to going to the Museum. We do have memberships at both places so that helps. Connor had brought along some fossils he wanted to have analyzed just in case. The people at the museum were very nice about it and took our fossils and labeled them. They said they would get back to us in a couple of weeks.

These are the fossils we took to the museum

Connor is reading a book that Grandma bought him for his birthday. It's called "Cruisin the Fossil Freeway". It was written by the curator of the DMNS (Denver Museum of Nature and Science). He is giving a lecture about fossils in a couple of weeks and we are going to try to go. Connor would love to get his book autographed..I don't know if that will be possible but just hearing him in person will be interesting. The illustrator of this book is Ray Troll He lives in Alaska and he does kind of far out drawings of nature, mostly fish but he illustrated this fossil book. Connor says "he's kind of a hippie". haha
