30 Days::Day 18

For the past few weeks, it has felt quite wrong on the rare occasions that we are not outside enjoying this amazingly beautiful weather. It is this time of year that I wish I could hit pause. It is this time of year that I want to soak up these "perfect" days in every pore on my skin until they seep in good and tight. It is this time of year that I bask in the light of living on this little piece of the earth.
So, on the days that we are spending time inside...it is usually because of something so incredibly cool that we just couldn't resist! Places like the natural history museum down the street from us. It is one place that we recently spent a few wonderful hours at. Hours spent exploring, pointing, explaining, watching, playing and LOVING us some dinosaur bones.
It really was pretty exciting. There is a part of me that gets totally enthralled with trying to imagine the existence of these creatures. Not to mention that Asher could probably spend entire WEEKS inside of places like this without ever once considering or noticing whether or not we are around.
And once these perfect weather days start dwindling in existence...I am thinking that we might just start referring to this place as our "home away from home"...we loved it that much.

I am so glad you went and enjoyed yourselves. It is a wonderful place to spend time indoors. Hope your home is filled with even more dino stories today! :)

Oh, I wish I could have been there! I'm sure this was total heaven for little Asher bug. :) Sounds like everyone enjoyed it though too!

Oh, this looks like a place to visit, and yes especially when it is 150 degrees outside :)
