Echo and I did a museum visit as well.

We spent the weekend in Raleigh so we could go to the annual Astronomy Days at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences. Unfortunately there wasn't as much astronomy stuff to take pictures with as there has been at previous events but I got a few along with some pictures of the regular museum exhibits.

Echo got to ride on a robot.



And we saw an Echo-sized rover (When I asked the ladies who were running this exhibit table if I could pose Echo in the rover for a photo they thought it was really funny and we all couldn't stop laughing at how perfect it looks Cheesy)



The giant snapping turtle happily wasn't lurking in the back of his enclosure. I might enjoy watching people walk by that exhibit and think it's just a big fish tank and then freak when they see the turtle a bit too much Roll Eyes



They also have a tank of those Day-Glo fish that have some jellyfish DNA so they glow under a blacklight.



The top floor of the museum is entirely devoted to insects and other arthropods. They have this super cool praying mantis sculpture right when you get off the escalator onto the floor. We did look at all the various critters but no buggy photos were taken.



After the museum we went to the local Krispy Kreme. Krispy Kreme is from NC and this location makes the doughnuts on site, so you can watch them being made.



And then of course we had to get some to eat.



We got back kinda late so boyfriend and I decided pizza for dinner was in order. Our local Pizza Hut has this claw machine filled with rubber ducks. It's play until you win so it's essentially a giant ducky vending machine.



Back home with our pizza and ducky prize.

Nessie got to join us in our girl scout derby races this weekend. We didn't place anywhere but we did have fun. Then we got a snow day on Tuesday and school was cancelled. Fun!

Here in the south we have been down to about -3C or so and had just a little snow, so Orange and I made a tiny snowman. I was going to find bits to make a face, but we wimped out and came back inside!  Grin

You wimped out at -3C   Shocked  too funny  Cheesy

Kyle and I (and Emma) just got back from an hour-long walk in 33*F (0*C... or would that be 0.5*C? or 1*C?) weather (and I stupidly only wore a long-sleeved shirt and leggings)...  that was warm compared to what it was week before last (-4*F / -20*C), but also cold compared to what it was week before last (61*F / 16*C).  I love the weather in the Midwest!

And wow! So much snow! It was 80f/26C here today. But we're getting a 1-day cold front and it's going "down" to a high of 60f/15C tomorrow.  Cheesy

After spending a few hours at the airport on Sunday, the Monterey trip ended up not happening due to a broken plane and some airline ridiculousness. Since this was a work trip, I was not in the least upset by this.

Now Dani is helping me pack up a box so she can head home - possibly tomorrow if I can make it to the post office at work, since it might snow on Saturday morning.
