Science, Nature, and Us

Wednesday, December 1, 2010

Thanksgiving weekend was lovely in Austin.  It's turned chilly, but the days are still pretty sunny and warm.

On Saturday, we decided to get some fresh air and enjoy some free Austin fun.  We went to the Austin Science and Nature Center.  It's in Zilker Park, and hosts an interesting array of rescued wildlife, including a coyote named Martha, a "descented" (but still kind of stinky) skunk, and a bobcat named Conan.

We got some great family pictures while we were there.

Is that what skunks smell like, Dad?
We are a fleece-wearing family.  Yes, we are.

We also enjoyed the "dinosaur skeleton" on display, though it makes the guys look a little bit like they're doing hard time.  Not hard time.  Fun time!

Hope this finds you well,
Heather
