So we took the causeway across the Great Salt Lake to Antelope Island. It is very scenic, it's much larger than I expected, but it's not very "fun" for 4 year olds named James who insist on being the only one to use the telescope viewers. You can see him below in Max's picture for his scout assignment of some plants on the island.
We saw another bison on our drive around the island...and some buffalo pooh. Scat. Dung. Droppings. I now have pictures of that, too, on my phone.
So then we went back north east to the Ogden Eccles Dinosaur museum. This was mainly for Andrew and James, but Ben also came in for fear-of-missing-out and to help me. JB and Max went to get us all some lunch at the Pie Pizzeria location nearby.
Inside the museum was a small-ish room with some skeletons, but upstairs was a robotronic scene that fascinated Andrew and James. We spent a lot of time watching these dinos roar and move. And it was dark and cool and I nursed the baby there.
They could dig in the sand all day, even though the day before at Bear Lake they had been digging in the sand all day. They showed me every bone they uncovered.
Outside are five acres of dinosaur sculptures. The boys below were running underneath the Brachiasaurus and wouldn't stop to pose.
And then Andrew wanted to be like a T-Rex in front of every predator, just like last fall at Thanksgiving Point's museum.
He made James pose, too. If you saw the video on my Instagram, you saw Andrew trying to get James to stay still for the picture, and James melt down when his arms wouldn't stay inside his sleeves. I just kept giggling as I tried to help them, I couldn't help it.
Then we headed home in time for a quiet time and dinner before Ben's scouts and Max's first Young Men/Young Women combined activity.
