We went to Morrill Hall
this last Saturday. They have dinosaurs, fossils and all kinds of other science related things. This weekend there were a lot of kid related activities. The boys had so much fun!
First we got to see this big elephant. The boys laughed at the elephant's butt.
We got to see this big bird to! It reminded me of the bird from Up
! The one Russel named Kevin.
They dug for dinosaur bones to.
Right after someone from a booth gave them each a Jolly Rancher this character came up to them. It's probably my favorite photo from the place; except they have chipmunk checks.
They also loved the booth where they got to go rubbings. Isaak was pretty quiet the whole time, but not at this booth. He said, "I love doing wubbings! I do them at preschool all the time!" Mica did one rubbing. He colored on top of it. Isaak did about 5 wubbings
The dinosaur room was fun! They not only has full models in there, but they had an activity for kids. Kids put on a tail and walked in the sand to see how their footprints looked with a big tail dragging behind them.
Mica dressed in clothes that are worn where it's really cold!
Guess who wants a pet? They both do. Isaak talks about wanting a frog.
That I can do. I've told Mica, "Nothing furry, I'm allergic to all
things furry." I was advised to not even have a hairless dog or cat. My
allergies are that bad. Mica got this idea he wants a bird pet. No to
that to! I told him he could possibly have a lizard, frog, fish, turtle,
or a naked mole rat. Now he wants a naked mole rat. Gross! But what are
our options with me who is allergic to everything? Here's Mica with his
pretend pet bird. I wish I could just keep pets as pretend. Sorry I'm
not a animal person. It's probably because I've always been allergic to
all other people's pets. For a long time I've been pushing them away, so
I can breathe. I hate when my lungs close up.
We did a lot of other things that day! The boys loved the room about tornadoes! We even got a Science Fair project idea!
Mica got to be a weather man! It's funny to see where he stumbled and he was obviously reading the whole time. ;)
