I Think I Heard a Dinosaur Roar!!

Last weekend we watched our friend Di's son Quanah, six, while he participated in a golf tournament. So we thought we would keep Jonah and Quanah entertained by taking them to the Heard Museum in McKinney to see the Dinosaurs Alive exhibit. We took Jonah last year and even though he was a little bit afraid of the life size robotic Dinosaurs in person he still to this day asks to see the Dinosaur pictures on the blog. So, he was really excited about going again. We figured since he was older he would be over his fear. Well, we were wrong! Jonah would not get within five feet of the dinosaurs even with Josh holding him and when they roared he would cover his ears and say "No, No Dinosaur!"

Quanah however loved seeing and exploring each dinosaur and couldn't wait to go inside the museum to dig for dinosaur bones!

After we made our way through the Dinosaurs Alive exhibit, we visited the Farm Animal exhibit, The Animals around the World exhibit and the Butterfly Exhibit. Quanah was not impressed with any of these but Jonah loved feeding the farm animals and seeing the monkeys!

Back inside the boys had fun digging for dinosaur bones and picking out souvenirs before we headed home!

Thanks for this post, Monda. You have totally inspired me to take Holton. He loves dinosaurs and I'm curious to see how he'd react to the big guy version - instead of his little toys.

Hope you are feeling well with baby #2!
