AZ Museum of Natural History/Organ Stop Pizza

I looked online to find an adventure for us today, and discovered it was free museum day, so we decided to take the crew to the Arizona Museum of Natural History, because who doesn't love dinosaurs!  We took our time and got there after lunch.  We spent a couple hours browsing the exhibits and exploring!  The kids panned for gold and E decided to jump in the water, and when we told him to get out of the roped off water fountain area, he went in more.

Meeting Humpty Dumpty!  There are so many cool random statues in Mesa down town.  (Love that J is picking his nose . . . that kiddo is such a silly character)

M had this great idea that since we were headed into Mesa, we should totally go to Organ Stop for dinner.  We hadn't been there forever!  It was a lot of fun!  The kids really enjoyed the yummy pizza and dancing to the music and eating ice cream.
