Discover the Dinosaurs

When Grant gets excited about something he does this crazy little laugh. Being really original, I call it his Crazy Excited Giggle. I love it and I don't ever want it to go away. It's like he's so excited that he just can't contain it. It's one of my favorite things.

Grant loves dinosaurs (is there a little boy out there that doesn't?). Last weekend we had no real plans for Saturday and then a friend gave us tickets to the "Discover the Dinosaurs" event at the fairgrounds. When we told Grant that we were going to see dinosaurs that day, he did his Crazy Excited Giggle.

When we got there, the line to get in was insane. BUT we had tickets already and got to go right in (thanks, Rocco!). 

Grant was a little apprehensive at first. Some of the dinosaurs move and make noise and there was quite a crowd in there. When I asked him to stand in front of one for a picture, not long after we go there, he wanted no part of it. But it wasn't long before he got comfortable (or realized that other kids were doing it without getting eaten).


I just like the way he's hanging on to Husband's head.

That's not creepy.

Grant seems to really like triceratops and when we came across that one was finally when he agreed to pose for a picture. He was really excited about the triceratops.

Once he was more comfortable, he was all over the place. Couldn't wait to see the next dinosaur!

 He went nuts for T-rex! 

Easily my favorite picture of the day.
They also had an ice age exhibit. That was fun because Grant looooves the Ice Age movies so he got to see some of the things from that movie (they actually had the movie playing in a little theater there). 

And he got to look for dinosaur bones!

After the exhibit part, they had a huge section of inflatable stuff for the kids to play on. If there is an inflatable slide around, Grant will find it.

He was having too much fun for me to get any good
pictures but there was a HUGE smile on his face!

And they also had a spot where you could ride a dinosaur (or wooly mamoth or rhino-looking thing).  They had, I think, about 6 different dinosaurs/animals that moved and you could ride them for a couple minutes. You couldn't choose what you got to ride but when it was Grant's turn, he got the triceratops! 

I think he was a little nervous but he really liked it. The whole thing was so much fun for him! 

On the way out, Husband couldn't resist and opportunity to feed Grant to a T-rex :)
