This Tuesday, the free museums at Balboa Park were the Natural History Museum and the Model Railroad Museum. Kaden liked exploring the Natural History Museum and seeing the life-size dinosaur replicas - he was fascinated by the hypothesis that asteroids struck the Earth causing a global climate change and thus extinction of the dinosaurs; he asked why the fire engines didn't help put the fires out.
While the dinosaurs were cool, he was itching to get to the model railroad museum. First, he checked out some of the different model railroad set-ups...then he saw the play area, and that was that. This quickly became his favorite museum.
We followed our museum visits with another picnic at the park.
And what picnic is complete without a ride on a purple dinosaur?
