A fossil dig and some magnets (a family outing)

Only metro Atlanta gets an entire day of rain and stays below 35 degrees. It is nasty out there. Family and friends all over Tennessee, Virginia, and North Carolina are stuck indoors with lovely snowy scenery out their windows. We get to look at puddles.

So as not to let the weather win the battle, we struck out on a mini road trip at 10 a.m. this morning. We took Amelia to a new science museum, the Tellus Northwest GA Science Museum. It's not very big, but they had several dinosaur bone replicas and tons of pretty minerals in all colors. Amelia enjoyed picking out all the purple ones. It was a nice family outing, and it gave us a reason to get out of the house. Amelia's favorite parts were the fossil dig area and the "family backyard". We made it a nice day to be together in spite of the gray chill out there. Steve gets so little playtime with his girl each week, and we try to make our weekends special.
