Southwest Museum, last Friday

Um, yea, please don't bother him while he's trying to read or you'll get "the look."

The boys love this outdoor area where they can sift for gold flakes.

This is a meteroite that was found near Tucson in the 1800's and was used as an anvil by a blacksmith for many years.

This is a drusy chyrsocolla boulder. The word drusy refers to the white, sparkly areas and the word chryscolla is the blue-green mineral. The sign does say "Please Touch", just in case you were wondering ;)

The boys brought their nature journals - which makes sense since it IS a natural history museum.
Nate's recognizing more letters!
