More Dinosaurs!

We drove from Great Falls, MT to Idaho Falls, ID today. It took a long time. Luckily, we had a stop scheduled in the middle. We went to the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, MT. It was pretty cool. The rest of the day was spent in the car, but luckily, the view did not suck. Montana is very pretty. We went through forested mountains, and rolling hills, and tiny towns and bigger towns, and even the capital, Helena.
That's Big Mike outside the museum. He's pretty cool.
This is my favorite part! That's a REAL T-Rex skeleton, not a replica. The real deal. He's almost a complete skeleton too! I could have stared at him all day.
I love this guy too! This buffalo is made out of all kinds of stuff. He has a guitar for a leg, and there's a horn back there that works, and a xylophone-that also works. His head is made from phone cords. There were other animals made like this too, but this buffalo was the best. This is in the "Explore Yellowstone" area of the museum, for kids.
Riley exploded a geyser! It made a loud noise which scared us all.

Outside of the museum is a living history museum. It's an old house/farm. There are people dressed up, baking in the kitchen. It was really pretty neat. Quinn's wearing a newsboy hat and pretending to work on school work. I love that hat on him!

We got here, to Idaho Falls, at 6:00 pm. There was enough time to have some dinner, walk along the Snake River and for the boys to go swimming in the hotel pool. It was quite a picture day with the museum and the river walk. CLICK HERE to see the rest of the pictures.
