Museum of Ancient Life at Thanksgiving Point | Lehi

Stephanie went last week and wants to tell you all about it!

The Dinosaur Museum was awesome. We went last year and the kids were super excited to go again.


This year they had a 7 wonders exhibit made out of balloons! It was pretty crazy to see. They will have a different wonder each week. They were in the middle of building the next one out of balloons so it would be ready for the following week.



The highlight was definitely the sand and water. My kids could play in sand for hours. Seriously.

And of course the obligatory 'I'm going to be eaten by a shark' photo was a hit for all.

Although this is a nice museum, it is totally kid friendly. Things are clearly labeled to touch or stay behind the fence. I didn't feel like I had to keep the kids quiet and in-line. 

They were free to run, crawl, jump around, and.... we didn't use our inside voices the whole time.

They really just ran around and explored freely, stopping at anything and everything that caught their eye.


Then we ended with a little fossil digging.

Again, more sand, more happy kids.

We decided to grab an early dinner before the long drive home. I saw Thai Siam close to i-15 so we thought we would try it out.

The Hibiscus lemonade caught my eye and I had to give it a try. A-mazing!

I wanted another but our sweet server talked me into trying the Fresh Limeade with Herbs. It was so good! I seriously can't decided which I liked better. 


I was craving curry and my kids are obsessed with orange chicken, so instead of ordering off the kid menu, I got one order of orange chicken and if fed all 3 kids(10-4yrs) perfectly!
 
The yellow curry was HUGE. Left overs for the win! And the fried rice was perfect. It had mini corn cobs and chicken in it which Aberdeen (11m) loved. That along with some rice and she was a happy baby.
We finished with fried bananas and mango sticky rice because really, sometimes you have to try something new. Breckyn(7) and Riz(4) were not a fan of the bananas so they settled for the coconut pineapple ice-creme that was piled in the middle. 

Locke(10yrs) and Aberdeen(10m) devoured the mango sticky rice and I got the bananas all to my self. 

They were amazing so I'm glad I didn't have to share.

We will definitely be back next time we are in Draper.
