There were many displays and museums at the Springs Preserve and we had a lot of fun checking them all out. Here's Maddie, Gus, and Cord in the entrance to the first museum we entered.
The kids listened to some information on flash floods...
....then saw one come crashing in on them. Homer was a bit nervous, but everyone else took it all in stride.
Maddie checks out the innards of a Gila Monster.
Frances does an even closer inspection and nearly ends up inside forever!
Jenny isn't sticking her tongue out at you... ...she's just imitating the Gila Monster Cord is looking at behind the glass.
Erin gets a bit freaked out by this creepy vampire bat.
She and Jenny decide they want to check out something a little more fluffy.
Erin, Maddie, Cord, Homer, Jenny, and Frances pose outside an Indian hut.
But Homer wants to see what's going on inside that hut!
This display informs us of the growth in the population in Las Vegas each decade and the amount of water being used during that decade. Jenny poses under "1970's" the decade she added to Las Vegas' population.
There's still more to show, so feel free to check us out again tomorrow.
While in Las Vegas, Jenny and Erin took us to this great museum and park, called The Spring Preserve, where we had a fantastic day with everyone. There were tons of displays, fabulous gift shop, and this extremely creative park that I'm focusing this post on.
This is Cord checking out a giant bird's nest.
There were so many places to climb and explore.
Here's Gus E. up on some rocks that rival those at the City of Rocks!
Frances and Homer found this little train more to their liking, though.
This is a better view of that giant bird nest.
Frances wasn't much for climbing up high, but she didn't mind posing on this huge snake.
Even Gus got in on the fun.
Tomorrow I'll show you some of the other fun spots at The Springs Preserve is Las Vegas.
