Animals Inside Out

Today, Bertrand left school a bit early to see the "Animals Inside Out" exhibit at The Leonardo, a local science museum.

Bertrand could see every exhibit unimpeded from his wheelchair since we went at an off-peak time.

Both kids loved the exhibit!

Victoria's most recent fascination has been with skeletons, muscles, and fossils.  Now, thanks to this exhibit, we can add organs (heart, lungs, stomach, etc.) to that list.

It's hard to see from these photos, but this bull is huge.  Bertrand was impressed.

The future doctor (PhD? MD? both?) examines her patient/research subject.

This giraffe was a favorite.

After the exhibit, the kids wanted a snack, so we hit the patisserie across the street.

Victoria cheerfully shared her "eclair fraiser" with Buddy.  
(He also polished off a third of mommy's kouign-amann bread pudding.)

As we left, Victoria declared the outing "a great adventure!"  We all agreed.  :)


  1. I want to go to this so bad. I went to the human bodies one and loved it. Animals just fascinate me and your pictures are great.

    1. It was a great exhibit but smaller than the human bodies one. It was just the right amount for 2 kids and one extremely pregnant woman. It was also perfect to go at 2:30/3:00pm because there was absolutely no one else there. The exhibit was ours. B could "sing" and look (at the dramatic lighting) as long as he wanted without getting overstimulated by the crowds.
