Pony tail before we leave the house.
The first thing the kids usually see is the face-painting station. Anna really took to it this time. Liam, too.
There was a dinosaur exhibit this time around. I thought Anna might be afraid, but she loved it. I think the reason kids love dinosaurs is that they aren't around anymore. They're these huge monsters, basically, and you'll never ever see one in real life (well, I probably won't, but she might if they're ever brought back a la Jurassic Park). But they were real!
If you stand perfectly still, he won't be able to see you.
And here it is again, my favorite window in Saint Paul, MN.
If I can digress for a bit here, I've always loved taking photos of the kids in front of this window. I just love the big circle and the fact that it's so much lighter outside than it is inside. It's a pain in the ass, because the kids are always back-lit, but I see it as a challenge. And I never seem to face that challenge the same way as last time. Here are some other photos of them in front of the window, not from the most recent trip.
This is Anna in August '07.
Anna in October '07.
Liam in November '09.
Anyway, that's just a taste of them. There are a lot more, but I'd have to crack open the external hard drive and, well, there are more photos to show from our most recent trip. So, back to present day:
The water room is always a hit.
