Hey all! I’m back! Ya miss me?
The family and I took an impromptu weekend vacation to Dallas, Texas. I have an aunt there who I hadn’t seen for over a year. She travels a lot so we packed up the kids and headed over for a little visit while she was in town.
She took us to some of the funnest places in Dallas and we had a wonderful time!
First we visited the HUGE Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas. It was amazing! The Perot Museum has 5 floors with 11 permanent exhibits about science, prehistory, birds, and lots more. We only had a couple hours to spend there so we only just scratched the surface of what the Perot Museum has to offer.
We started our visit with the creepy, crawly Bugs! 3D show. The boys were enthralled. Then we toured a couple of the exhibit halls. I just have to say how surprised and relieved I was to find that the Perot Museum has privacy areas for nursing moms throughout the museum! Thanks, Perot Museum, for thinking of we nursing mamas!
Here are some fun pictures from our visit to the dinosaur exhibit at the Perot Museum.
On the bottom floor of the Perot Museum is a small, but cute children’s museum complete with my boys’ favorite children’s museum feature–a grocery store/farmer’s market!
The museum has tons of activities for kids and families throughout the week, including. They even have homeschool programs!
The museum can get pretty crowded–we had to wait 2 hours before we could get into the exhibit area–so, if you’re going on a weekend, it is a good idea to call ahead of time and check the crowd situation.
