History Museum Field Trip

The 4-H group that Alex and Mac are part of went on a field trip to the History Museum for a scavanger hunt in the Treasures exhibit.  They both had a lot of fun and the exhibit was very nice.

Alex really liked the “panning for gold” part of the exhibit — she and Mac each found a very pretty gem (aka gold):

After having fun putting on an impromptu puppet show Alex and Mac went digging for treasure:

After that we walked around a bit to see the other exhibits before heading home.  I especially liked seeing the clothing from the 1904 World’s Fair exhibit.
