Natural History Museum

Today, we went to the new Natural History Museum of Utah with titi Aury, titi Sabrina, and uncle Steve. This was our first time going with the kids. While we knew that the adults would love the museum, we didn't anticipate the huge hit it would be with the kids!

Bertrand insisted on getting out of his wheelchair to participate on many of the hands on activities! He *stood* and played at the water table, played with puzzles, and spun many of the interactive signs. Of course, Victoria was running and playing with him, as well as pointing out all the animals (you can see her trying to feed the wolf below).

The museum is 5 minutes from our house, so I hope to get more photos in the visits to come. As we left, we purchased a family membership because anything that will motivate Bertrand to get out of his wheelchair like that is WORTH IT.


  1. Love the picture of B with the genetic code. If only we could crack that code! :( So glad you are getting out to do fun things. As my sister says of parenting small children, "Sanity is in the excursions."

  2. "He *stood* and played at the water table, played with puzzles, and spun many of the interactive signs."

    Excellent! A therapeutic lifestyle on display!

    Brings back memories of our children in museums - thanks!

  3. Thank you, ladies! This summer, the museum will be my sanity saver while Bertrand is off from school, as well as bolstering our therapeutic lifestyle. :)

    And on that note, I'm off to research more FES for home use...

  4. I know the feeling Ashley, but who knows, maybe in the not so far away future.

  5. Therapies that help bring about balances in your body include acupuncture, energy healing, massage therapy, and applied kinesiology. Facebook.com/in2naturals
