We went to see Sue the T-Rex!
Today we took the boys to the Gray Fossil Site! Basically, Tennessee Dept. of Transportation was excavating this area for a road interchange in 2000, and they hit some black dirt unlike the clay mud usually found 'round here. They halted the excavating, and started searching the area for fossils, and they found lots, and are still excavating some! Currently the Sue exhibit is there, and it was really neat to see as well. They even take visitors outside to a dig site to show them what they do and where they have found certain fossils. If you ever have the chance to go to this museum, go! It was really interesting for both the kids and adults!
