Hico--Day 2

We visited the Cameron Park Zoo in Waco. The kids had fun viewing all of the different animals. Even though it was HOT, the kids were all troopers. The misters helped cool us off, too.

We ate our picnic lunch at the Mayborn Museum on the Baylor campus. Then we set off exploring and discovering cool things throughout the museum. We were fortunate to view their traveling exhibit: Leonardo daVinci Machines in Motion. It was really cool to see all of the machines he came up with and even cooler to get to see how they worked.

Upstairs in the museum, we explored everything from sound, bubbles and water to animals and insects and pioneers. The kids really enjoyed the rooms where they got to dress up in pioneer clothes and outfits from different cultures. The TV station was a big hit, too. We have several budding reporters and meteorologists.

The kids finished their day by cooling off on the trampoline with water.
