Vacation Part 7

New York here we come!  We took a train into NYC to go to the American Natural History Museum.

They definitely had the most impressive collection of dinosaur and prehistoric animals that we have seen this whole trip.  What a perfect museum to make our last.

We took a really really cold walk through Central Park to go to a pizza place to meet Cousin Amy, Bobby, Tallulah, and Trip.  You were not a fan of the cold!

You were, however, a big fan of Trip.  You guys had a head shaking contest, a roaring contest, he wowed you with his really cool superhero tats and you thought he was hilarious!

You guys were virtually impossible to take a picture of but a few were captured.  We took a cab back to the Train Station.  During the ride you exclaimed, “This is what the holidays are all about!”.  I’m not sure where you picked that up at, but it was pretty darn cute!

It was a late night, we didn’t get home until after midnight!  But you were a great traveler. What a great day!!!!

We got to meet up with Aunt Ginger and cousin Samantha today for the Franklin Institute and the Dinosaur exhibit at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University.  You started the day taking your first train/subway ride.  You got to do all kids of cool stuff at the Franklin Institute like walk through the human heart, listen to all kinds of animal heartbeats, make some rovers with daddy and be a crazy weather man.

We went to the Academy of Natural Sciences next and they had a really awesome dinosaur exhibit.  The T-Rex outside moved and roared!!!!  There were a bunch more inside.  We also got to watch some volunteer paleontologists working on some dinosaur bones.  You also got to be a paleontologist yourself!

You of course got some new dinosaurs and we did some shopping while you napped.  We rode the subway home…you loved that and discussed our day with Mr. Damon.  At dinner at Johnny Brenda’s you got to sit in the window sill.

Vacation Part 5

We decided to go to the Please Touch Me Museum with Cousin Tiffany, Jack and V (Frank Sloan V….yep the 5th!!! Just like you!).  That is after you woke up, chilled out, played some iPad and put your mammoth in the snow that was heavily falling outside!

I can’t really describe to you how much fun you had today.  The museum was not busy so you guys pretty much had the place to yourselves.  There was so much to do!!!

This was Daddy’s favorite part.  He even took a picture so that he might recreate it.

You even went in the Alice in Wonderland part, had some tea, ran through the maze, painted the roses red (don’t tell the queen!) and got big.

You followed your big cousins everywhere.  Next we went and you played driving the ambulance and doctor…yikes! You loved the supermarket, especially getting your favorite food which was apparently fish!

We ended with the Rocket room and making some crafts.  The rockets were quite the hit.  We had so much fun playing with our cousins.  We were so glad that it was a snow day so that we were able to.

You were exhausted but so excited to tell Mr. Damon about your day over some fabulous BBQ with your Mammoth of course!

Vacation Part 2

We started the day with some sick boy snuggles.  You were in good spirits but definitely sick.

We ended up in Washington DC, one of my most favorite places.  After checking into the hotel, we took a very cold walk to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum.

You enjoyed the hands on stuff and seeing all of the airplanes….so much so that you fell fast asleep.

We finished the night with a dinner at the hotel and a chill night in the hotel room.  You got really sick and developed a 103 temp.  Tylenol did the trick but we were still really worried about you.

Just a playground type of weekend!

We just kept exploring different playgrounds.  Now it’s going to be hard to decide which ones to go back to!

Race track!!!

You guys love playing with the race track!  You test all of the cars to see how they all work and which ones are the fastest. Oh and Lucky’s back!

Lucky!!!

It’s tree time!

We have set the tree up at Mimi’s!  You helped put the ornaments up this year but you were very picky on which ones you put up.
