Natural History Museum

Today we took a nice walk/bike ride to the Harvard Natural History Museum, which we had been avoiding recently because J had been at that awkward, 18-month-old stage when it was hard to engage or contain him at a more "sophisticated" type of museum. But today he did great. I'm also starting to see M moving to a new stage of interest where she will actually sit at the exhibit stations and listen intently to the audio narrative or really study items with the magnifying glass, instead of just playing with buttons. It's fun to see them move into new stages of development and interest and it keeps each museum visit fresh and enjoyable.
