Natural History Museum (birthday post)

Today is my 21st birthday! I've been celebrating it all weekend. On Saturday my parents threw me a party (in which my parents and Abe's parents met for the first time). It went quite well! Then yesterday Abe took me to the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles. And finally tonight I'm going out to have dinner and a few drinks with my friends :)

This appeared to be a glass ball and when Abe jumped behind it (being silly like always) it made a very cool shot. It's my favorite out of the bunch.

Overall, this is a good museum to go to if you're looking for a place walk around and look at some interesting dinosaur fossils. It's $9 for admission and $8 for parking. They also conveniently have a cafe inside so you don't have to leave the museum if you get hungry.




It's been a good weekend so far. I hope all of you are having a good weekend too!
