This happened back in February so I don’t know why I’m only talking about it now. Maybe because none of the pictures look that great due to me being completely unable to make normal expressions in selfies. It’s a curse. Anyway, I wrote this scavenger hunt for the science museum:
Scavenger hunt completion depended on taking a selfie with all the things listed. I know it was a little unfair, since I wrote the hunt in the first place, but I totally won. Here’s how:
You can tell it is the past because of my hair: both its color and the fact that I haven’t chopped it all off yet.
There is totally a fish back there. It was harder than it looks to maneuver some of these things into a selfie with you.
That’s a taxidermied bird if you can’t tell.
Leopard shark whatttt yes! I still want this.
This was definitely the most difficult item to get. For Rob because he fears strangers and for Rachel because guys who work at museum cafes hate their lives. Steven and I lucked out and met awesome people, though!
The butterfly dome was super hot and I got sick of trying to get a live one to land on me. Butterflies don’t know anything about selfies.
This was probably the hardest picture for me to finagle my way into.
That’s my scared face
This was probably the easiest one. North Carolina is everywhere in the North Carolina Science Museum. Of course I went for the biggest one.
I have no idea what this expression means.
Rob and I both spotted this purple thing at the same time, but I was faster/more willing to elbow children out of the way.
Another easy one
This is a tunnel showing you the ~underwater world~ of prehistoric North Carolina. It would of course be the coolest place to sleep if you were Mixed Up Files of Basil E. Frankweilering it
Giant ground sloths are my favorite prehistoric creature!! But I promise not to really steal them, NC Museum of Science. I know that’s been going around lately.
There are actually more than one set of creepy child statues in this museum.
This one probably got me the most stares from other museum-goers. Probably just jealous they weren’t having this much fun
If you’ve ever been to the geology section of the NC Science Museum, that expression makes total sense
Rob was unaware I had taken this picture somehow. SCAVENGER HUNT NINJA!
I’m excited to write one for the history and/or art museums! Just one more reason to come visit me.
