We met Auntie Heather in Chicago the Monday before Christmas.
Carter was ready to go. It was a bitter cold day so I gave him a choice of two sweaters. He chose the one with 'colors'. Heather said he looked stupid. At least he stood out when he started to wander too far.
Carter first sees some dinosaurs. This was the whole reason we went to the museum. Carter is WAY into dinosaurs right now (which I am enjoying much more than the train fascination). He loved seeing them all and I think we spent nearly an hour in that room.
I have to say, having never seen real dinosaur fossils before, movies had led me to believe that dinosaurs were much bigger than they actually were. Thanks stupid Jurassic Park.
Us grown ups actually learned quite a bit. The history section contained quite a bit of information that 17 years of school seem to have left out. Like the fact that there have been multiple mass extinctions (dinosaurs were number four). It would appear that we're heading into another mass extinction now per the above sign. Unfortunately it does appear that you only notice these things after they happen. Mass extinction number three lasted something like 5 million years.
