3D Dinos

Work called so we made a quick trip to Houston to get our dose of heat and humidity. We were thrilled that Denise drove down on a rainy Saturday with the boys and we headed off to the Houston Museum of Natural Science with Kelsey to see the IMAX Dinosaurs in 3D.

Here's Tyler prepping for the trip to town by affixing his new fish tattoos. He's also sporting a lipstick kiss on his forehead, and a chocolate milk mouth.

Then Kelsey bought T and Cody some strawberry rock candy so you can see THAT on there with his 3D glasses.






Cody gave us his best pose with his mom.

Tyler alternated between taking off his 3D glasses so the dinosaurs wouldn't get him and trying to grab them on the screen. He had a running commentary through the entire film. "Are they gonna show more fish?" "Where are the T-Rexes?", "There's a pterodactyl," and "Is that a whale skeleton?" etc.

The biggest hit of the afternoon was the sand pit where C &T "discovered" dinosaur bones.



and then ...Opa! Geopalooza!
...

And some cool fossilized shells!
...
Kels and I really liked the gorgeous petrified wood...but Tyler was on a quest for sea life. FINALLY! Shell heaven!


And Tyler telling Kels all the types of fish in the mural...

and after a whirlwind tour of the museum..back to the house...
and one or two little glasses of vino ..and time to relax...
Here's one of my favorite photos of the day...

...oh geesh... what a fun day... if only I could put all of them into my suitcase!
