Out and About in Oxford

(I apologize for the lack of the post last night — JA and I were snuggling and then it was today)

At the cute, little bookstore we found last weekend, we found a book called Footsteps (or Footprints, maybe) through Oxford.  Anyway, it has three walks through Oxford for kids, along with some activities, so we ventured out on the first one yesterday while Bill taught his first classes.

We started at the Museum of Natural History in this lovely building

and the girls set off exploring and touching (and answering questions about rock ages)

Outside the museum, there are some casts of dinosaur prints found in Oxfordshire that they girls followed “to see where they led.” (The answer: a car park, aka parking lot.)

Apparently, I mainly stopped taking pictures at this point, but we went and looked at the different gargoyles by the Sheldonian, went to Blackwell’s, which has the largest room of books in Eurpoe, 10,000 square feet (swoon!) and a fun children’s section, hit Covered market again and found some really cute cups:

got a Ben’s cookie and headed home.

Tomorrow is the Open Market on Gloucester Green, which we are really excited about.
