Whilst deciding where we might go for a grand adventure, we landed on a trip to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, though I was nervous there wouldn't be a whole lot for the boys to do. Boy, did I underestimate the excitement of seeing. The boys couldn't get enough of the animal dioramas. So many animals! So easy to see!
They'd run up to one of the scenes, observe for a while (all while grunting and performing animal noises), then...
...chase off towards something else. Got to see it all!
Truly, they were there a moment,
All traces of separation anxiety, gone. They just followed their fingers.
It was adorable and hilarious to witness them "oo oo oo"ing all around the room, Liam and Dash criss-crossing each other as they discovered the next amazing creature.
Though they did sometimes take a minute to let us help them notice all the small stuff.
Woah, is that a dragonfly, daddy?
Following the theme of observing animals that have, ahem, passed on... we visited the dinosaur bones. Big big big hit.
There was a whole lot of roaring going on.
They just loved seeing the big creatures all around the room. There was even an exhibit with animatronic dinosaurs (no pictures allowed) that got them all kinds of excited. And a little nervous. But still excited!
Dash and Liam of course took the time to read all about these prehistoric wonders, they like to learn.
But they also liked to just hang out and soak in the wonder!
