Being that my kids are in high school, it has been ages since we've been to any sort of museum, science centre or art gallery. I figured it was time to add some culture back in their lives.  When thinking back on all the field trips they have been on, combined with places we have taken them to, I realized they had never seen a dinosaur exhibit.  I really don't know how that's … [Read more...]
