fieldtrip!

Every Monday I hold a small playgroup at our place with some of our neighborhood buds. It's been a really fun way for Noah to socialize with some other little guys his age and I've had a blast preparing little lessons for them each week. We had a special treat this week because gma S. scored us some free tickets to the Museum of Natural History. So, we took advantage of those and had a great time!

They LOVED seeing all of the animals (and had no idea they weren't actually alive) and running crazy through the exhibits. We hit the African Mammals, Hall of Biodiversity, the special water exhibit, and the dinosaurs, of course! A good time was had by all and they even cooperated for couple of group shots!

waiting for the "choo-choo"

there were a lot of "Oh, wow's!"

Cameron LOVES to chase Noah!

a rare moment where they were all stopped in one place to admire the zebras

(I was the only one quick enough to catch this shot!)

Polar Bear, Polar Bear, what do you hear?

boys and dinosaurs!

all tired out!

What a fun place to visit. I'm definitely jealous! It looks like the museum in 'Night at the Museum'. I'm glad you guys had fun. Oh, I love the idea of your little playgroup. I think I might steal that idea. I may need some ideas for activities!

Wow, you make me miss NYC more and more with your NYC outtings.
Well, looks like everyone had fun at the museum ... lions, tigers, and bears, oh, my!
Everyone looks great.

Jess! Henry loves museums too and we have some really great ones here in Pittsburgh. I wish we could have fully appreciated all the fun ones in NYC though. I was going to tell you that I loved your Christmas photo. Little Noah's pose looked exactly like you pose for photos and it totally cracked me up to think the random things our kids inherit from us, like gestures and posing for the camera? haha!It was seriously darling.
