The Paleontology Museum

We went to the BYU paleontology museum a few weeks ago for a field trip. Eric loved every minute and would have stayed for hours. Beth, on the other hand, would not be in a single picture because: "Dinosaurs are yucky and mean and we need to cut their heads off." I'm not sure where she learned to "cut their heads off," but I'm relatively sure Eric had something to do with it.

Here is Eric with a small T-rex.
He thought the giant crocodile head was the coolest ever. They said that a head this size belonged to a beast up to 22 feet long. No thank you!
"Mom, if I waved my arms fast enough could I fly too?"
I had to get a picture of this rack for my dad. It came from an ancient Irish Elk with a spread of nearly 10 feet!
Eric was duly impressed.
It was a really fun day. I think we may have to do it again some time.
Because I had to post something about Beth, here is a new face she is trying out on us. Appropriately called her fierce face.
