We took a short trip up to Santa Barbara and visited the museum of Natural History. Wesley had gone there during school for a field trip, and he thought it would be a fun place for us all to visit. My favorite part was the butterfly greenhouse. There were thousands of butterflies just flying freely around the greenhouse. I have never seen so many kinds in one place; it was pretty! I think the kids most enjoyed the area of "grossology." It explained and had activities relating to burping and other not-so-pleasant things.
