We started our day downtown at the Museum of Natural Sciences. Grant loves that museum but goes nuts for the dinosaur bones. And in their Nature Research Center, there is an aquarium that, among other fish, has a "hammerhead shark". I can't remember the actual name of the shark and it does look similar to a hammerhead but it's not. However, you try convincing a 4 year old that it's not.
|Checking out some fishes|
|And the whale bones|
|He really liked that big turtle!|
|It wasn't crowded at all yesterday, great|
day to visit!
|Me & my guy :)|
|Hulk Smash lunch date!|
Such a perfect day to sit outside.
|Somehow he's become a Star Wars fan and he|
thought this hat was so fun (but, no, he didn't get it!)
Not having had a nap at all at this point, Grant was very tired and he got a little whiney when we left the park. He asked him if Grant & Mama Day was over (we were heading home because I had to get dinner started). I told him it wasn't but that we had to get going. He just about started to cry when he told me "I don't want Grant & Mama Day to be over!" We had one more stop to make, a quick stop at Target (is it ever a quick stop there??) so I told him to take a little nap. But he wasn't tired!
|Right. I've heard that one before!|
There's a Chick-Fil-A right next to Target and it was still relatively early in the afternoon. Since I had to wake him up anyway, I stopped at Chick-Fil-A and surprised Grant with some ice cream. Then Target. Where we got what we needed, and what we didn't need, and had a blast trying on their silly Christmas stuff.
|He was still so tired that he was going into fits|
of giggles over these funny glasses!
By the time we got home, I don't know which one of us was more tired (though only one of us would admit it) but we had such a great day together!
