We took my dad to the Museum of Ancient Life at Thanksgiving Point for his birthday. (Because that is what every 50 year-old really wants)
Eli called it the dinosaur zoo-seum.
He carried the map and navigated us around the place.
He was very concerned about seeing "real" dinosaurs, until we explained that they were all dead and skeletonized.
(Or as E says, "boned-up")
This little guy was not boned-up, but he is a nice dinosaur.
We saw a stegosaurus
and lots and lots of other dinosaurs!
We assembled a giant stegosaurus puzzle
Here is Eli with a giant prehistoric sloth skeleton. Sloths are scary. I'm sorry, they just are.
Eli was very scared of this shark. He wouldn't get close enough for me to get a picture.
His very favorite dinosaur was this guy:
His face when he first saw it...
He loves dinosaurs!
Iris... not so much.
