TEXAS - Ripley's Believe It or Not! & The Palace of Wax

We decided to go to the Ripley's Believe It or Not! museum and the Palace of Wax with Ed's sister and her family.  What a fun time we had!  The kids loved climbing the dinosaurs made of old car bumpers and parts.  I'm surprised none of them lost a finger!

OH.MY.GOODNESS... don't even ask...

I've always been intrigued by wax museums for some reason and so of course when I heard there was one at the Ripley's Believe It or Not! museum near Dallas I was going to go... even if I was the only one interested!  I was pleasantly surprised to see the Twilight gang greet us as the first ones showcased.  Of course we had to get a picture! 

Can you guess who these lovely ladies are?!
