A day out with Drew

Gee-off and I got to spend the whole day with Drew! We don't get to do that very often, so it was a treat for us too really. First we went to the Please Touch Museum in Philadelphia. It just recently moved to a brand new location in Fairmount Park and it was so much fun.

Captain Noah's puppets

Elephant toy sculpture

The beautifully refurbished carousel

Fill er up!
The human hamster wheel
After the Please Touch Museum, we headed over to the Museum of Natural Sciences. Of course, Drew wanted to see the dinosaur bones. And you'll see below that he got to actually dig for fossils himself too.
Ahhhhhh, T-Rex!
The Big Dig
There was also a butterfly conservatory (kept at 80 degrees and 80% humidity - eck!)
where we saw some pretty butterflies flitting around.
This is the amazing Amazon butterfly, the largest in the world!
Just kidding. :)
