My Second Blog

Hello Everyone out there. It's been a crazy week.  I have a few giveaways going on and finally I am doing a giveaway on my blog as you can see.  I am still figuring out this blog thing, but it's fun.  It's Saturday and 7:00am in the early quiet morning where my family is sleeping. The weather is still in the mid 70's and clear sky.  The best time to get things done.  My son wanted me to let you all know that if anyone out there has kids who loves dinosaurs and has any questions to please send them his way.  YES, He is addicted to dinosaurs.  Going on one year now.  Walks, talks, sleeps w/, acts out, eats like, reads about DINOSAURS.  In all my life, I never knew at my age (mid 40's) I would have to learn over 100 dinosaurs, how to spell them, know where they live, what they eat and so on.  Yes I learned words like Sauropods, Hadrosaurs, Pachycepholosaurus, Celophysis, Giganotosaurus, that there are no dinosaurs that fly, they are called flying reptiles.  Well I can go on, but you have the idea.  Uh Oh, I think I hear my son stomping down the stairs.  Oh by the way did I mention his name is Joshodontomimosaurosauss.

Okay so now for my TOP 5 LIST I mention I would try out.  Today will be about the Top 5 Museums
