Day 5.068: Oh the place that we went!

Well, the picture of the Lorax in yesterday's post was taken, not at any kind of movie tie-in event, but at the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden.

It's a very cool place where the kids did bunny-ears behind the Lorax, looked over Dr. Seuss's shoulder, acted shocked with Sally, caused chaos with Thing One and Thing Two and discovered that the couch wasn't as comfortable as it looked.

My favourite sculpture is Yertle the Turtle - the king of all he can see -on his nine turtle stack with a very disgruntled turtle named Mack at the bottom.

It was all part of our day-trip to the Springfield Museums.


Apart from the garden, we spent the most time in the science museum where there was much to be wowed by.  Africa:


A nice live-animal demonstration:


A turtle with a head that looks like dead-leaves as bait for its prey - nibble me and I'll...


We also visited the fine art museum, and - very briefly at the end - discovered the excellent Hasbro game room at the history museum.


I guess we'll just have to go back!
