Dinosuars...Oh my!

Besides The Girl in the Watering Can and her friends, pictures Abs wanted to see the dinosaurs at the Smithsonian. She loves dinosaurs and is a walking encyclopedia about the different type, what they eat, etc. We got to the Smithsonian and came upon some fossils and Abs was so excited! We rounded the corner and saw the different skeletons and she was looking at each one and spouting off facts about the dinosaur. Then we made the mistake of having her look up to see the Pterodactyl above us and she was done. She didn't want to see the dinosaurs, learn about them or even be in the same part of the building. I tried to get a few pictures of her in front of the skeletons and she finally agreed after some convincing on my part. She faked a smile for the pictures and then we had to leave.

Apparently pterodactyl's are herbivores and she was worried they would mistake her fingers for rodents. She cracks me up!

All of your pictures are great. After reading through your posts, you're daughter sounds like a fun person to hang out with ... it's must be like seeing everything for the first time again.

We were just in DC in June. We were in MD for my sister's graduation and my hubby had never been to DC so we took the metro in and did all those fun tourist things :)

Thanks so much for your comment on my post earlier this week!
