Thankful Thursday - Road Trip

This doesn't happen often anymore! All 4 of us able to go someplace together!

We ended up going to the Natural History Museum of Virginia in Martinsville...about an hour's drive... I love the giant Sloth that greets you at the door!

Run Nick, run!

The boys digging for fossils...this is a nice interactive museum.

This is a stromatolite. It is about 500 million years old! It was found in June of 2008 at Boxley Quarry in Blue Ridge...right around the corner from me! They found this right before we moved here but I remember hearing all about it on the news... You can read about it HERE

The museum also has an exhibit of Virginia animals but who doesn't have Possums...or is it Opossums? Anyways this little mama is traveling with her babies...

I liked this mural in the museum!

Today I am thankful for a day with the 4 of us out and about. We went to lunch, the museum and just took our time on the way back home....a nice day!
