We got our tax refund a couple of weeks ago and my husband decided we should take a quick weekend trip somewhere. We decided to head south because it has been awhile since we went that way. I found a couple of educational places I wanted to check out and we took off. A friend of ours told us about a Rock museum so we stopped there first. It was called Crater Rock Museum and the kids loved it. If you want to see a lot of rocks in place this is the place for you. Also the price was pretty low.
After the rock museum we checked out Jacksonville. I remember going to a museum there when I was a kid but we couldn't find it, so we checked out the cemetery.
The next day we headed to Ashland and visited the Science Works Children's Museum. It was pretty similar to some other places we have been, but the kids enjoyed it.
After the museum we went to Lithia park and took a walk.
On the way home we stopped in Golden Oregon, which is a tiny old Gold rush town that is just a ghost town now. Only a few of the original buildings are still there. The kids thought it was great fun running around and checking them out.
Oh, and Buster didn't actually kick this building. ;)
In the end the kids thought we had a great time and I checked a few field trips off of my list!
