To start off our Father's Day weekend festivities, we spent all day Saturday at MOSI. Magic Matt, one the BCM Interns was able to get us all free passes, so that made it even better! Thanks Matt! For weeks, the boys had seen the dinosaur exhibit highlighted on the outside of the building and were by this point begging to go in to see for themselves what a T-Rex "really looks like."

Here are the kids with their Daddy just befor starting our big day!
Right away Collin and Rahul went to see the dinosaurs. Griffin was terrified by the sounds and wouldn't even consider going in for a peek.

Rahul made sure he got some shots of Collin with the big dinos, since I had to miss out on the moment.

Ah, but alas, we convinced Griffin to go in. He buried his head on our shoulders when it came time to pass by the T-Rex, but other than that eventually seemed to enjoy the experience.
Rahul was pretty impressed by this Hollywood Squares remake!
There happened to be an India exhbit while we were there as well, so Rahul got to talk to the boys about their heritage a little.

There was also a body exhibit going on, this was one of the boys favorite parts! A bodily function piano. I did mention they're all boy right?!
This shot is for my brother! He'll no exactly why!

Future Doctor?
Or pilot?
Eden in awe of the world!
The boys having some Daddy time.
Since it was Father's Day weekend, MOSI had all kinds of crafts and activities set up for the children to participate in- the boys grew a dinosaur sponge, won some cheesy little prizes and entered the coloring contest. Here they are hard at work.

I can't believe they didn't take home first prize!!

After we spent a couple of hours in the museum itself, we decided it was time to introduce the little ones to Kids In Charge.

In case you're wondering:
Kids In Charge! The Children’s Science Center at MOSI is uniquely designed
space for children twelve and under. Based on cutting-edge theories about learning
and skill building, Kids In Charge! emphasizes the value of learning through play
by bringing together science, creative thinking and inspire the imagination.

Here is Eden playing a great game of checkers!
Rahul vs. the boys! I wonder who'll win?
Right after this, Collin and Griffin started recruiting other children and "took their Daddy down!"
Eden enjoyed the light table,

Rahul had some time to teach Griffin some domino tricks,

and then Eden and Collin spent some time thoughtfully considering what to make with all those shapes.

For a good bit of the time Eden showed some engineering skills,
while Griffin and Collin seemed to have a blast working in the fruit and veggie stand.
Then Eden decided to take a back seat trip until
her Daddy promised to give out driving lessons!
I think she's mastered it completely!
This was an all boy game! Shooting air and balls- you can't even begin to imagine how long it took to get them away from this spot!!

As we were leaving we made a little stop by the butterfly garden which also has a small inside pond. The boys enjoyed seeing the fish up close!

Eden was thrilled too, as her favorite new words happen to be "fishy and turtle!" She was a talking machine while we were observing them!
Our families shadow- minus Eden- the stroller didn't show up so well.

At the end of the day we were super exhausted! We grabbed a quick bite to eat and within 5 minutes in the van, the kids were sound asleep... for the night! Now that's a successful day, from beginning to end!!!
