Sunday we went to the Gray Fossil Museum to see some old bones. The site was discovered in May 2000 and is the largest-ever tapir fossil find.
This is a fossilized tapir noggin. Tapirs don't look nearly so big on Go, Diego, Go!
And this is V giving the tapir a smooch.
Unfortunately, it was right around this time that V decided she needed to run through the museum at break-neck speed and check the quality of the echoes in the emptier rooms.
But I stopped and took a photo of the red panda fossil on our way out. Angry looking little fellow, isn't he?
So we hung out by the fountain outside so that it might feel like we'd actually done something with our time. Didn't work, but at least we tried.
And V had a chance to expend some of that boundless energy of hers.
And play with some turtles.
Which is really all she wanted to do anyway.
I'm taking all black and white photos in November and you're welcome to join me!
