Centre for Life - Fossils

Busy day today. With a little help from Nana and a good friend we managed to fit in Baby Gym, a visit and shared lunch, a trip to The Centre for Life for a Fossil Workshop in the early afternoon and dance class later in the afternoon. Phew! Good fun but I'm glad busy days like that just come round now and then. I wouldn't like it to be like that all the time!

Here are a few pictures reflecting the activities Hermione joined in at the Fossil Workshop.

Crayon rubbings of fossils.



Picture of some kind of fossilised creature.



Picture of a dinosaur.



She also made plaster cast of a fossil but it hasn't photographed well at all.

Miles enjoyed a few games of Scrambled Eggs and also reached a bit of a milestone today in that it was the first time he has had no day time nap. Oh no! All those jobs I used to do during that hour could soon be things to add on to the end of the day instead *scream*!

Looks like you had a lovely day.

Looking at the spiral in Hermione's picture I imagine it to be an ammonite. ;-)

There's some info here if she wants to see what scientists believe they looked like. :-)
