Road Trip to Roswell

Heading west through New Mexico, we had an educational visit in Tucumcari on the way out, and a fun-filled alien tour in Roswell on the way back!

The Mesalands Dinosaur Museum is a fabulous little spot, based out of a community college.  It's worth the time to stop, stretch your legs, and play inside for a bit.  At the Tucumcari Historical Society, you can journey into early 20th century New Mexico.  There are both indoor and outdoor exhibits here, and several hands-on ones.  
During the drive back home, we saw huge wildfires burning at the Mexican border, changed our route, and decided to stop off at Roswell to check out the extraterrestrials.  There is a giant UFO Museum dedicated to the "UFO Incident," Area 51, and the science and speculation behind them.

The kids chose these books:
We found this oil painting of a parent and child triceratops migrating...entitled "Are We There Yet?"  My husband and I appreciated this one the most!!
