over the weekend, my father-in-law took us to the science center so hendrix could see the dinosaur exhibit.
the t-rex was named sue, and hendrix was fascinated with her. on the way there as we talked about it, he was a little frightened and told us that he didn't want to see a t-rex, but instead wanted to see a long-neck because they are nicer.
once we got there though, he was fascinated, and impressed by how large she was. he talked our ears off about the bones, and the different kinds of dinosaurs, and was difficult to pull from the dino exhibit to move on to see other things. ;)
it was neat to see him enjoying this experience with his grandpa!
our dear friend from college, matt, came to visit us for the weekend, and he graciously enjoyed our family fun; which made for an even more memorable experience for hendrix ;)
there was a dig zone, and hendrix enjoyed excavating some bones of his own.
he had the hang of it already, as we did something like this on a smaller scale at his dinosaur birthday party this past fall ;)
blaire was such a chill gal, hanging out in her stroller, snoozing tons, and watching hendrix's every move. she is so flexible, making it very easy to take her on all-day outings; and giving us a chance to focus on the energetic one in the family!
check out my cool goggles, mom!
there were so many other learning zones in the science center, and hendrix loved each and every one of them, though his attention span was rather short so he enjoyed jumping from one thing to another all day long.
hendrix even did a great job using the potty all day. he had a little accident right as we got there as he needed to go after being in the car for the hour trip and we couldn't quite make it to the bathroom on time, but he is doing great with using public restrooms (as long as they don't have an automatic flush.......) and is proud to be a big boy!
it was a really fun family day, and i know we will be going back again soon!
