what i did :: natural history museum

This past weekend while we where visiting Kaylah and Kevin we took a trip to the Cleveland Natural History Museum. It was really fun; there are so many interesting things in there! On the website it said that photos were allowed but if you wanted to post them online you just had to ask permission at the front desk. So, of course Kaylah and I wanted to post our photos online so I asked one of the people at the front desk for permission. It went as awkwardly as it could have because apparently she was not familiar with what the website said and kind of had no idea what I was talking about. After much confusion we figured that it woule be fine to post photos on our blogs. So here are a few!
Warning: If you go somewhere with me I will almost definitely take creepy photos of you from behind while you are doing something else. Walking is my favourite but I am also known to creep on you if you're taking a photo of something.
They have tons of these really cool dioramas at the museum. 
There is also a little outdoor area with some real animals that you can visit. My favourite thing by far was the otter. Ivan and I saw some while we were in Montreal a few years ago and we fell in love. I completely forgot how adorable they were and I fell in love all over again. I officially want to change my answer to the "What animal would you be?" question from this video.

While these digital photos are pretty and fun, Kaylah took a bunch of film photos while we were at the museum and I can't wait to see how they turn out! I have been trying to shoot a bit more film lately and seeing Kaylah shoot so much has me even more motivated to do it!



  1. My hair is so pretty, those colors are literally perfect! Neat! Haha.

    I love how the boys are looking the opposite way of us in that photo of the TV. Haha!!

    ALSO, oh my gosh, I got so many awesome pictures at the museum! I just finished scanning them and can't wait to post them - in like a million posts because there are so many that I just adore!

    DOUBLEALSO, I miss you! Can't wait to hang out again.

    1. See, isn't it a good thing I take creepy 'from behind' photos. Shows you how pretty your hair is! And I agree, the colours are beautiful!

      It was so hard to narrow mine down!

      I miss you tooooooo! Let's get a plan in action.

  2. "Otter love one another!"

    my big kiddo had a tshirt that said that with a pair of otters on it ( Otters are so cute!

  3. I want to go there! That's my kind of place! I'll have to see if there is a cool place like that around Dallas.
    I agree that Kaylah's hair is so pretty.
    I am a known picture creeper as well.
    You two are so cute and I love your friendship, is it lame and creepy that I'm kind of jealous and wish I lived closer so I could crash in on your adventures? If so just pretend I didn't admit that...

  4. Haha, I am always taking creepy from behind pics of my friends, too. We'll be walking in a group and I just gradually start walking slower and slower until I can sneak my camera out and take their picture without their knowledge. Creepy, yes, but they usually end up being some of my favorites pictures!

  5. I want to eat my lunch in that dino picnic area every day forever.

  6. Hahaha, I love the creeping photo you took of Kaylah, I'm the same way and it makes me feel like a total weirdo! Glad I'm not alone!
    This Museum looks so interesting!

  7. Have you seen the Vancouver BC video of the otters holding hands? It's so cuuuute <3 Also I had no idea there was so much to do in Cleveland Ohio. Crazy.

  8. I creep on people, too - they're always great shots! I love all of these pictures.

  9. i take creep pictures of people who are with me too. my favorite kind!

  10. Fantastic photos! I love going to museums...

  11. Wow that place is so amazing looking!! Totally jealous. Our science museum is no where near as fun.

  12. I wish we had a natural science museum in Kansas City! We're planning a family trip to Chicago in the fall and we'll have to hit theirs up :)

  13. AHHHHHHHHH! Its a dinosaur! I love love love dinosaurs. Theyre so cool and rawr-tastic!
