After our trip to Michigan we headed home, the long way, so we could stop in Kentucky and visit the Creation Museum. We have been so looking forward to spending a day there, especially since we've had the privilege of meeting Mr. Ken Ham and hearing him speak at the home school conferences we've attended in the last two years. We arrived at the museum at 10am (one hour after it opened) and stayed until closing. There was still so much to see! I highly recommend to anyone who is thinking about going, do it!! Also leave yourselves two whole days so you can completely enjoy and experience the museum. It truly is awesome!
Seeing our first dinosaur outside the museum
Wow Daddy what's that??
There are dinosaurs all around us
We found some petrified wood, just like Jonathan Park
Wouldn't want to come across this guy after the Fall.
Some reasons we can KNOW God's Word is TRUTH.
Defending God's Word to the critics
We must take Him at His Word. God said, I believe it, that settles it.
"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." Genesis 1:27 So which one is our closest kin? Let's face it, an ape is an ape and a person is a person, made in the image of God.
Walking into the garden of Eden.
"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary, the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour." 1 Peter 5:8
The Creation Museum's next big project and a life sized ark isn't all that they will have! The Ark Encounter
Learning about dinosaurs and dragons with Mr. Buddy Davis
David and Aiden both got to make a dragon out of clay. Did you know that the word "dinosaur" is not in the Bible? Do you know it? It's because the word "dinosaur" wasn't invented until 1841 by Sir Richard Owen. The word "dragon" however appears in the Bible 19 times. Interesting huh?
Meeting Mr. Buddy Davis. What an amazing ministry he is a part of there with Answers in Genesis
The Dragon up on the wall is the one we were trying to make out of clay. Mr. Buddy Davis made that display along with many others throughout the museum.
T-Rex skull, wowey!
This is what he probably looked like with all his skin on, yikes!
One of Mommies favorite dinosaurs.
And don't we forget it!!

All of the answers to our questions can be found in God's Word

Some history of God's promises, and His word never fails! "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away." Matthew 24:35
Checking out some more fossils and bones of different creatures.
We had such a great time at the Creation Museum and already cannot wait until we can go back again. It is so encouraging and challenging to have a ministry that focuses on getting the truth out about creation. It was a reminder to us, as 1 Peter 3:13 says, "But santify the Lord God in your hearts, and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:"
Thank you Answers in Genesis for your commitment to TRUTH.
