Halloween Highlight

What's better than dressing up as a mummy for Halloween? Seeing a real mummy! Today we went to the museum of science and history to see an Ancient Egypt exhibit. It was fascinating! We did an archaeology dig, learned to read hieroglyphs, viewed ct scans of mummies, built a pyramid and learned the history of " Annie", the 16 year old mummy on display.
We also stayed long enough to explore other areas of the the children's area. I felt it was a great way to dispel some of the mystery and spookiness of Halloween. We will definitely be going back for more!
