Election Day 2016

So, the girls were out of school for Election Day. I knew that I needed to plan something for us to get out of the house or we could end up spending the entire day doing a bunch of nothing.  I had been seeing advertisements for a new attraction at Fernbank Museum , so I thought it would be a good place to go.
Last time we were at Fernbank, Rebecca was so little, I thought it was
time to visit again.
The star of the museum. The dinosaur is so big, just incredible to see.
So big, that I couldn't get it all in one picture.
We saw a special exhibit about the largest dinosaurs.... the Sauropods.
They had tiny little brains, but managed to survive for over
100 million years.
We had lunch and then finally went outside to see the new exhibit,
Wild Woods in the Fernbank Forest. It is one of the largest old-growth
urban forests in the country.  It covers over 10 acres of woodlands.
Lots of trails and pathways to follow and even wooden play areas
for the kids.
A bee "hotel".
We found the playground.
It was a perfect fall day to be outside and exploring.
We headed back inside to see an IMAX movie and then up to
Nature Quest. It teaches about the different geographical areas in Georgia.
We finished off the day with a look at some amazing seashells from
all around the world. Made me want to go to the beach and look for shells.
It was a fun day at the Museum.

We came home and spent the rest of the evening watching tv
to see who the next president would be.
