Bones and Bouzouki

I could not stop taking pictures yesterday at the Natural History Museum.  Bones make me giddy, and they had lots of them.  The old dioramas are stunning, and we were all so excited by them.  I had one of those perfect, happy moments watching my family appreciate the African Mammals while I laid on the floor in the middle of the hall so I could get my shot.

The brand new Age of Mammals exhibit has just opened, and it was spectacular.  Lots of these guys are older than forty-one.

After the museum, we went to Papa Cristo's, the best, best, best Greek restaurant, and we were treated to to some beautiful bouzouki with our gyros.

Tomorrow, I'll show you some more museum pictures and tell you more about Papa Cristo's, but for now, I'll just say thanks to my family for making this one of my best birthdays ever.
