Gracie and Chi's Visit to Colorado - Drive back to Hays, Kansas

Saturday morning we got up, ate breakfast and took the dogs to a local vet to board until Monday.  What with all the potty stops and the time change, we didn't arrive at Mary's until 5:00 p.m.  We all went to IHop for dinner , a quick stop at Wal-Mart to buy the ingredients for monkey bread and then back to Mary's to spend the night.

The next morning Gracie and I made monkey bread.  Mary got out fancy plates and glasses and we all enjoyed it.

We then went to the Sternberg Museum of Natural History there in Hays. 

The new exhibit was SuperCroc, a fascinating look at a huge crocodile that lived with the dinosaurs. 

Look at the size of that crocodile's head!!!  No wonder he was feared by the dinosaurs.

The girls enjoyed spending time in the Discovery Room.

Chi learned the concept of balance and how to balance the scales with wood blocks.

A quick stop at Dairy Queen for milkshakes for all and then we met Billy and Sheri back at Mary's at 3:00 p.m.  There were two excited girls to see their mom and dad.  I'm sure they chattered all the way home!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our week with the girls but must admit to being exhausted!
