Vacation 2010 Day 3: The Creation Museum Part 2

The following morning we headed back for a few more hours at the Creation Museum. There were a few shows we hadn't gotten to see the day before, and we all wanted to walk through the main part of the museum one more time.

Here, Random takes on a dinosaur eating it's prey.
Methuselah ended up being one of our favorite animitronics in the museum. We aren't sure why, other than the fact the boys thought he sounded like Yoda and they found that hilarious.
It was a gorgeous day! We took the time to walk through their beautiful botanical gardens. Ponds, waterfalls, and lots of green and sunshine - it doesn't get much better than that after days of rain before leaving home!

The T-Rex topiary.

A visit to their petting zoo rounded out our day. We got to pet a zonkey (zebra/donkey cross) a zorse (zebra/horse cross), camels, goats, sheep, ducks, and a few other things as well. Monkey was VERY determined to pet one of the very cute Malaysian chickens (who knew chickens could be cute?) and finally managed to corner one long enough to give it a few pats.
We all left the Creation Museum feeling like if that was all we did for our vacation that we would've been happy. Everyone loved it and it was definitely one of the big highlights of our trip.
Pictures and stories can't do it justice....You have to go see it for yourself!
