We had our first batch of visitors come this weekend. Joey's younger brother and sister flew in from Reno, NV this past Thursday. I set up camp for them in our living room (see here) and we saw a lot of this city! We didn't sit around much which was great, I love just walking around exploring. First place I am going to write about for "when in houston" is the Houston Museum of Natural Science .
I love musuems so I am easily pleased when attending these types of places. This place was fun! They had lots of cool dinosaurs, fossils, educational stuff, and THE BEST gem collection I have ever seen. I was too amazed by all the rocks and stones in this gallery that seemed like I was walking through a royal collection or something I forgot to take pictures of it :( but the dinosaurs were sweet!
to my surprise this was not a brontosaurus? it is a diplodocus.
this big guy is a sloth! or ancestor of. he was huge and scary! Very different from this guy we saw on our trip to costa rica this summer
this was my favorite creature in the paleontology exhibit. he's just so cute and chubby! too bad someone is trying to eat him.

neanderthal! probably the only thing I remember from my anthropology class. not to be mistaken with anthropologie which is a much more fun and interesting subject.
the museum's exhibits go through all the stages/life of the earth starting with dinosaurs, to animals, to a really big exhibit featuring oil, energy, and modern technology...hmmm I wonder why there is such an emphasis on that sort of stuff in the Houston museum???

Have a fantastic monday folks! I need to go shower since I haven't even thought about such a thing since Joey convinced me to start watching breaking bad...netflix is so evil to have the next episode automatically play 15 seconds after the episode ends.
