Bugs, bones and an enormous Blue Whale

It was the last day of the Easter holidays today, so we decided to go to the Natural History Museum in London. Stupidly I had assumed all the kids would be back at school (as we had an inset day), but it appeared that I was wrong and every child within 50 miles of London appeared to be there with us.

We skipped the dinosaurs as that was mobbed and headed for the slightly quieter areas of the museum. Bug Mad Girl was in heaven surrounded by bugs, bones and a life size blue whale.

 After a quick whizz around the shop (the highlight of any museum trip) we headed for the Sensational Butterflies exhibit. There were masses of butterflies flying all around us, landing on us and happy to sit on Bug Mad Girl's finger (despite the 'Do not touch the butterflies' signs!)
