Last week I decided I would take the boys to the Natural History Museum for their free home-school day on the following Monday. Sometime between last week and this past Sunday I forgot I had decided that. But I had told people that I was going apparently. Sunday I got a Facebook message from someone I didn't know, a friend of a mutual friend, asking if I was still planning on going and that she had heard I was. Well although I had never met this sweet lady, I decided it was a good kick in the butt for me and thought why not lets go, even though it seems like a lot of trouble this late in the game. So Monday morning she came with her bigger than my van and picked us all up and we got to know some new friends while riding up to LA. We ended up having so much fun and the boys and I met a new friend that lives right here local and they are super sweet and fun.
We actually ended up hitting both the NHM and the California Science Center right next door. The boys loved the dinosaur bones and the woolly mammoth bones. They got to touch some real fossils too. We also barely escaped a dino stampede
