On Saturday I wanted to do something fun with Liam in the morning since Ian and I had a hot date planned for that night. I decided we'd take him to the Bean Museum (i.e. the dead animal exhibit or Liam called it the jungle place) and then to the dollar theater to see Bolt.
Liam loved the museum and we were all actually pretty enthralled with all the taxidermy animals, insects, fowl and reptiles. It was really cool. What was even more cool was the free price tag. We could go every week and learn more!
Here is Liam with a Liger. I looked this species up online and learned they are bigger than tigers and lions. Rare and monstrous beasts.
Liam and Daddy looking fierce.
Marty from Madagascar was there! (Liam calls him Smarty.)
Melman was there too!
After the museum, we went to lunch and then found that the theater parking lot was jam packed. We didn't end up seeing Bolt (to Liam's major disappointment), but we took him to the movie rental place and he picked out 3 DVD's. He was so darling reaching each one of them up to the check out counter. A very pleased kid to get THREE movies for himself!
At 4pm, we went and picked up Megan to come play with Liam so we could go on our date. We went up the canyon to our favorite restaurant and had a fun evening of chatting and eating amazing food.
You gotta love our window view... SNOW! We couldn't have eaten on the patio if we wanted to.
Liam started getting a fever when we got home. He did manage to have a blast with Megan while we were out and we were glad he had such a fun evening like we did.
