For each child's birthday I like to do something special for them, usually on their actually birthday, if during the week, but this year we did it a little different. On this past friday Timm stayed home with Collin and Kenzie and I took Alex downtown to the Smithsonian Natural History Museum and the Air and Space Museum. He had a blast!! He got to take METRO for the first time which he just loved, and then he just dragged me around the museums, I could barely keep up with him. Here are some pics from our big day (which I think I enjoy at least as much as him. :-) ).
At the Air and Space Museum they had a Cesna airplane set up for kids to sit in.
In the Natural History Museum they had a whole temporary exibit about dirt, Alex liked that they had pictures of bulldozers.
Alex in front of a mock dinosaur bone.
Alex (with his eyes closed of course) in front of a triceritops, he was so excited he could barely keep still.
