sound asleep. Now what? I figure we drive to the museum and by the time we get there he'll be awake. Not so much. Snoring blissfully still. Do we go home? Do we wake him up? The answer was a resounding no to both questions. By the time we got home he would most likely be awake or would not stay asleep much longer and we would just have to turn around again and drive 45 minutes to pick up the truck. If we woke him up he would be cranky and the museum would be a bust.
We sat there for a good 45 minutes chatting about our plans to move to Tucson when the phone rang letting us know the truck was ready (thank goodness we didn't go home!).
His face when he saw the entrance was priceless! Wish I would have had the camera out. The sight of Triceratops & T-Rex made him giddy!
This is when I regretted not having the Flip Cam. He was over the moon when he saw the T-Rex bones. "Whoa! Wook at dat T-Rex! Wook at his sharp teef! WOW! Wook Mama! T-Rex!" He could be heard through out the entire museum I'm sure!
Triceratops skullThis is where I learned that T-Rex has been found in several different parts of New Mexico! Who knew? Apparently hundereds of dinosaur fossils have been found here.
The funny part was watching adults listen to Jaxon. He knew all of the dinosaurs they had on display. And to see the adults look at him like, "Really?" was funny. I'm sure one day he will run this exhibit. Heck, he probably already can!
Can you tell how excited he is?
Waiting for the eggs to hatch. (there was a sign that said you could touch the dino eggs. Maybe not climb in the nest...)
Posing with StegosaurusHalf way there! 15 down 15 to go!
