The boys got pins & postcards, and when we finished they gave us a box of hash browns to eat.

The baby slept through the whole thing.
The boys looking at this cool collection of Mr. Potato heads.
A slightly better picture of all the potato heads.
(I need to apologize for the poor quality of my pictures, I do own a nice camera , but don't always have it with me. So these are all taken with my phone. But I realized I can blog & take pictures with my phone & even though it is a lower quality it is better than nothing. Someone told me that if there is no picture to remember it, it never happened. I know that isn't all true, but I realized I need to take pictures & record as much as I can. So that is what you have been getting lately. Sorry, but at least it is something.)
Okay off the tangent & back to the museum.
They had all sorts of facts about the potato .& old equipment. Did you know the average person eats 148 lbs of potatoes a year?
And the potato originated from the Andes mountains?
I saw this. & thought it was funny, it is put out by the governor of Idaho. I couldn't tell the year though.
A picture of the enormous potato outside the museum. It was a rather small museum, but fun nonetheless & we came away with a little more knowledge of the great potato.
