It was a Dino Dinner Party and it's gonna be a Dino Weekend. My husband and I are flying to Chicago with our two grandsons, Paul (age 6) and James (age 4) to visit both the Field Museum and the Science and Industry Museum. The anticipation for the trip has been an experience all its own. I didn't want my son and daughter-in-law to be listening to my grandsons repeatedly inquiring, "How many days until we go to Chicago?" So I saved the big announcement for this past Sunday. Which only left four days until--"Yes, today is the day!"
Earlier in the week, I sent the boys a card, "You're invited to a Surprise Dinner this Sunday," and when they came to dinner there was a 4 foot 6 inch dinosaur seated at the table waiting for them. My husband and I told the boys about the trip, and while we ate lunch we watched videos from the museums on a nearby screen. Today we're off to see Sue, 42-feet-long and 12-feet-high, the largest, most complete and best preserved Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton ever discovered.
I even ordered Field Museum dinosaur T-shirts for the boys and I to wear on the plane. We'll look ridiculous, but we'll be having the time of our lives. Yes, Grandma, Grandpa, Paul and James--we're off to see the dinosaurs. Look out Chicago, here we come!
