Graaaaaar we got dinosaurs downtown!

During Mardi Gras Bella had the week off from school. They also had the Friday before that off because we had what appeared to be snow fall from the sky. (even though it didn't stick to the ground) it fell in big pretty flakes. Bella was sooo excited since she had never seen real snow before except in her snow globes.

Our critters on the other hand... They were none to impressed.

Tink Tink as you can see... is no where to be seen. she stayed in Guido's house until what Im sure she considered "that obnoxious large fuzzballs fault" aka "snow" was over. Every thing that happens she walks up to Guido and just decks him.... Guido... sighhhh.

During the week of Mardi Gras as I before Mentioned, Bella had the week off. Yes Fat Tuesday was full of Parades and well You saw the previous picture in a post of Bella with beads? ughh yeah.

Well, At the Exploreum downtown they have this huge exhibit right now about Dinosaurs. So Bella has been wanting to go see them. She even decided she wanted to have her birthday party there as long as we could put pink bows on them.... ughmm yeah.
I think she changed her mind after going. She didn't care for them up close and personal. SHE SAID EYES REAL WIDE "MAMA! THEY WERE HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE. BIGGER TALL THAN DADDDDDDY! AND YOU KNOW HE IS BIGGGGGGGGGGGG!" hahahaha!

I guess this would be pretty intimidating when your 6!

She said "Mama! when He even said Graaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! I think I almost peed my pants!" hahahaha! John said she jumped behind him really fast!
I think I woulda needed an underwear change too if I saw that comin' after me in the woods!

She didn't appreciate this one at all it spit at her... she said it was "VERY RUDE!"
Dinosaurs have no manners I guess she needs to teach them a thing or two.

she did rather like these guys.

and this guy was kinda cute she said....

She said "This one reminded her of Uncle Windale hehehe" (she really did lolol) By the way that reminds me Happy Birthday ya ol fart! Hope ya had a good one!

They also went to the other part of the Exploreum and the Imax film. And the HANDS ON part

They let the kids move the dinosaurs...

Mad scientist doing experiments.

They had this dinosaur that you could climb on and have your picture taken with. Bella was posing with it and stuff people were all crowded around taking pictures of their kids. John tells Bella "put your head in its mouth!" She said "MAMA!!! Daddy wanted me to put my head in its mouth!!!" I said "well it wasnt LIKE it was REAL. she said "YEAH! BUT STILLLLLLLLLL!!!!"! I told her "but wouldn't it have made an aweeeeesome picture"

She said some lady behind them said "DAD!" when he said that lolol
SHe told me later that if there had not been so many people there she "MIGHT' would have. BUT "PROBABLY NOT that thing had to have at least 35 teeth"

So all in all Bella gives the Dinosaur exhibit at the Exploreum 2 thumbs up! If your in the Mobile area until Mid April go see it. Is really coool!
