You how you can tell your kids something and then you see a certain light in their eyes and total excitement? This was one of those moments. I knew that really wanted to make this happen.
Today was the day. I took my kids, my niece and nephew and off we went. An hour away, 5000 punch buggies, 2 million yellow cars (you had to be there) and 2 quiet game winners later we were there.

|Lots to see and learn!|
|The life cycle of a skate egg.|
|Real live skate eggs. This picture doesn't do this exhibit justice. It was really neat how you could actually see the babies moving inside the eggs. Have you ever seen an egg like this? |

|Alphaboy was so content to stay at the Dig Area and dig and dig and dig! The kids could keep one fossil of their choosing. After finding several things worth to keep he finally settled on a Tiger Shark's tooth.|
|Just one of the neat exhibits we saw.|
|This was a HUGE case full of different fossils, sharks teeth and such.|
|How can one look at this thing and not KNOW there is a Creator. I mean, REALLY??|
|Maryland is know for it's Blue Crabs (and Old Bay).|
|I wasn't the only one who enjoyed the otters.|
We also enjoyed the view from the lower level of the light house that is at the museum. The top was closed for lunch and we didn't get to make it back. After the light house, we got to check out lots of really neat boats, some old and some really really old.
|This was a neat little light house, I really wish we could have gone all the way up.|
|Checking out some old boat. One of the boats was a two log canoe from the mid 1800's.|
|We were all having so much fun, nobody wanted to leave.|
