Museum Comes to Life

Back in September the Idaho Historical Museum did a "Museum Comes to Life" day where they have lots of stuff you can do or see made.  Our good friends, the Moss' told us about it so we all went down.  It was so much fun. 

Inside the museum there was this model train that the boys were fascinated with and didn't want to leave.  We saw a whole bunch of old clocks.  There was even a really old time clock and a nice lady helped each boy date and time stamp their own "time cards". 
I didn't get a picture of this one, but there was a guy that was showing how to make paper.  And gave us a paper he made while we watched. 

Outside the museum was this huge Idaho Potato.
There were also some old fire trucks, police cars, ambulance and lots of other things. 
Also outside across the park was this cool water exhibit.  You can't see very much of it, but it was a bathtub with all kinds of faucets and different heights.  The boys really loved playing in this one. 
 Bauer especially loved it and got really wet. 
 There were some old Army cars, tents, etc.  The boys had fun getting in this side car that was attached to a motorcycle. 
  Were were so glad that our friends told us about it and can't wait to go back next year.
