So last week I had the experience of traveling thru the Ice age with my little mini me. Toot & I went on a voyage thru time when the Wooly Mammoth existed. Checkout this gallery of pictures we captured as we learned about dung, molars, and more!

Seeing the word curation on this chart I instantly thought of us Steemians on @Steemit and then we turned the corner and low & behold these enormous creatures awaiting our passing through.

We learned so much, unfortunately this is an exhibit of a deceased mastadon. Long before Ivory Tusks, and huge ears did you know what we know as elephants evolved from the Moerithereum which resembled a pig like hippopotamus? These guys lived about 35 million years ago so there's no way you & I could've been in their presence.

The name made me think of the crypto currency Etherium which has been a bit shaky lately in price as Litecoin has been sneaking up as it takes occasional dips. 20170630_140627.jpg
These Asian & African mammals soon took on a new look as they transformed into Wooly Mammoths, & Elephants before becoming extinct.

As you can see I felt like a kid again, not sure who was more excited lol I wish @PrestigiousKids could've been there to enjoy it with us. 20170630_142359.jpg
Preserved Skulls, Jaws, Tusks, we saw it all. But checkout these monstrous beasts below....

Our little father & son adventure was awesomely awesome as always and we could have stayed for hours more but didn't want to miss the outdoor portion, so we wrapped it up and went to lunch. :)

Oh but whats dung you ask? Elephants Poop! Thats right you guessed it Ewwww but its actually not as bad as it may seem. Dung is really just fiber. Elephants have poor digestive systems & over 50% of what they eat comedy straight out of the other end. There are so many different uses for dung but my lunch isn't one of them.

When we got outside it was Steemin! This was an amazing experience. Chillaxing, learning, & enjoying new endeavors we found a nice gentleman to take our picture & since he was alone we returned the favor. All in a days work for Blessings N Prosperity I suppose. Hope you enjoyed our voyage & it would be great if you would Upvote: Resteem: Follow & Comment - Happy Steemin good people - @CryptoblessingsDQmb2pQYkNLZCetfyfkNdRiEHS3GUqhGCUYBVEyQDX7m1rR.gif

Cool outing!!! Xtrodinarypilot and I have a couple museum family memberships and we try to take the kids as often as the exhibits change. We went to the Houston Museum of Natural Science a couple weeks after the baby was born, that was my first time out of the house. We love going and getting the kids brains off of electronics for a day! Good job!

Yes it was extremely fun :) I see you guys are a fun family as well @PrestigiousKids , Toot & I enjoyed watching @despool Inflatable boxing match video lol

Diego, Manny, and Sid lol. Yeah that pic of @prestigiouskids next to the bear is insane. You a big dude, you can take em.

Lol yeah man I'll definitely have to try! Now on the other hand if I had a few of those @despool jalapeños I might be in business. No beer I mean Bear lol is gonna stop us....
