Jordan had a super special date with Natalie to the ballet in the Berkshires, so I had to come up with a great one for Elliott. We traveled an hour south into CT to go to the Dinosaur Place. It’s mostly statues of Dino’s in their authentic size, plus a Trex tour (climbing area), maze and splash pad. Elliott insisted of taking a photo of he and every dino to show Dad. I think I have 30+.
This last picture is going to be the picture Elliott brings to kindergarten. It’s replacing a photo of him dressed up as an astronaut at the CT Science Center, where all you could see is his smiling face in a dimly lit room. I have to say, I’ve learned A LOT about dinos and space in the past year from this kiddo. I haven’t caught up to his knowledge on Transformer, I’m struggling to get as interested in this topic.
We ended the day with dinotracks ice cream (vanilla with fudge swirls, fudge pieces, M&Ms, cookie dough – YUM!) and chocolate lovers chocolate ice cream. We definitely missed Jordan and Natalie, but what a fabulous way to spend the last Sunday of summer vacation.
