As I have mentioned in my previous post, Tim took me to six places to celebrate my 26th birthday and on my actual birthday, he brought me to probably my most favorite place in the Metro. Location number 4 is the National Museum of Natural History. I was ecstatic! The 10-year-old nerd in me almost collapsed in excitement. So hang on tight, this post is not only going to be photo-spammed but also quite lengthy!
We started the day pretty early, as we live about nearly an hour away but it didn’t stop me from dressing up and putting on make-up so I could have pretty birthday photos which you might have already seen if you’re following me on social media. LOL If you’re not, then here are said photos haha!
Forgive the vanity, it was my birthday anyway but kudos to Tim for doing his best to take good photos of me. It’s a slow progress but he’s doing better. haha!
Moving on, we went there on a Tuesday shortly after it opened; we weren’t expecting too many people in the National Museum of Natural History and although the crowd wasn’t overwhelming in number, there were a lot more people than we expected. But the people didn’t stop Tim and
One of the countless reasons I love Tim is that we share the same humor most of the time, although, most of the things we both find funny are often inappropriate. Don’t judge us, I swear we’re pretty decent people if you meet us in person and I’m pretty sure everybody has a dark side, and perhaps ours is inappropriate humor. LOL
Going back, we marveled around each exhibit, amazed by the intricacy of the taxidermy, and the well-preserved models of certain artifacts and fossils. I find their dinosaur skull and bone replicas and the dioramas as well as their underwater exhibit amusing as well. Especially the dino skulls! HAHA!
I was enthralled more than him probably as I am a sucker for places like that since I was a child. I might have gone overboard in explaining stuff to him out of excitement but he didn’t seem to mind.
However, I realized that I wasn’t the only one who was as interested, it just takes the right kind of exhibit to bring out the nerd in Tim. He was more knowledgeable when it comes to certain types of reptiles which made us search for the bones of the prized crocodile called Lolong which as you may or may not know was the largest crocodile in captivity at slightly over 20 feet long and 2,300 something pounds.
We would have looked around some more if the upper floors of the museum were not under renovation and if it wasn’t
So let’s skip ahead to location number 6 which was still the National Museum but of Anthropology.
We didn’t take so
It was such a lovely day. I wish I could also express in words how happy I was on my birthday… I haven’t felt such innocent joy (despite the inappropriate jokes) in years. Just when I thought that my birthday was just going to be just another day that would pass me by, my husband turned it into something I would always remember for the years to come.
