Lunches for an Outing: Montshire Museum - July 11, 2014

When we heard that Sue the Tyrannasaurus Rex was going to be visiting one of our favorite museums, the Montshire Museum of Science, we immediately knew we had to go.  So, though yesterday would have been an astounding day for a hike, we drove across the state with my mother instead, to spend some time with a very old girl.

For those that don't know, Sue is the most complete T. Rex ever found.  She is 90% complete - whereas the next best T. Rex is only ~60% complete.  She is fully amazing.  Her full time home is in Chicago, so it was wonderful to see her in our little museum.

The Montshire included some really cool exhibits, including a replica of Sue's skull that you can touch.


There are so many other things that we adore about the Montshire, it was absolutely worth the trip.

And of course, I brough us lunches.

We had sandwiches on sandwich thins with hummus, caramelized onion cheddar, leftover pollo asado (thinly sliced), and lettuce, along with veggie tortilla chips, Saturn peaches (they fit in the lunchbox without smooshing!  Amazing!), mini mozzarella balls, cherry tomatoes, and some cheddar puffs.

We will be back to the Montshire soon, as we have a membership now... in fact, The Girl is going to Girl Scout Camp for a week starting tomorrow, and The Montshire is on the way - so we'll be stopping in to see Sue again, and this time, we are bringing a friend!  Look for camp drop-off lunches coming soon.

Pin It!
