The museum has a discovery center which was pretty fun to explore. This top picture is Justin checking out the teeth on some animals. Later he was super interested in all the bugs and insects they had on display. I would have taken a picture, but I really couldn't stomach to look at all the bugs. Although Justin said they were pretty cool.
The discovery center also had a bunch of furs on display which were a little creepy. I thought the skunk one would look appropriate since we do live near the marsh! It made me realize that even if I were to become rich and famous one day I still wouldn't wear furs!!
This last picture is the fossil of a triceratops head which was found in Montana recently. A group of paleontologists are working to preserve the fossil so it can be shipped across country to go on display. And seriously how cool would that be to work as a paleontologist!

5 things you don't know about me:
My nickname in high school was fatter.
I once scored the game winning goal by heading in the ball, with my eyes closed, and then admitted on camera for a tv interview.
I wanted to study geology to become a volcanologist, but changed to MFHD instead
I've visited one of the seven wonders of the world.
I've broken a rib by coughing
3 people I tag:
Well, the lucky three are: Elissa, Lisa P. and ... Jeremy (to keep you busy until the writers give you the new work). Thanks Wendy!

This other picture was the second goal of the game, which Donovan made from a pk. In the end the US won 2-0 which gives me a little hope for the US men this summer in the olympics! One of the coolest parts of the night was running into my old AYSO coach (of all the places). We had a really fun night at the game. That morning I had woke up with a cold and I'm so glad Justin talked me into going! I guess since my soccer career never took off (I guess I'd need skills for that) I'll have to be a fan instead, but that almost just as fun.
