Spring Break '10

Yes I am consistently late on posting about the events of my family!!
Spring break week, Theo took off work one day so the whole family could go somewhere together. We decided to go to the Oil Museum in Kilgore, and were pleasantly surprised at how fun it was! First they take you in a room and have you watch a movie about the history of oil in East Texas, which was kinda interesting, but was not keeping the children entertained, and I began to regret our decision to spend the day here. Luckily, the kids were more interested once they were able to walk around and do some hands-on stuff! Our favorite part was the old-timey town. They had shops to look at, an old-timey theater that played a much more interesting movie about the history of the oil boom in East Texas, and an elevator ride to the center of the earth! Fun and learning was had by all!

Dang....we went one day last summer & the docent who led our little group around wouldn't let us touch anything. We didn't get any pictures! Looks like they've changed their policy, huh?
