Children's Museum

With all of the yucky weather we have had, Kelly and I decided to pack Hudson up and take him to the Children's Museum at the Dallas Museum of Nature and Science on Saturday. We decided to go after Hudson's nap and it was POURING on the way there. It took so long to get there that we only had an hour to play before they closed. It ended up being a good thing though because they stamped our ticket stubs and said we could go back on Sunday. So, Noni and I took Hudson back again today to finish playing! :)
Hudson hates hats, but loved wearing the fireman hat...how cute is that little jacket?!?
He was absolutely fascinated by the turtles. He kept asking if he could hold it. Cute cute!! He stepped in for a closer look...

Maybe it is just me, but don't you love pics of boys walking hand in hand with their daddy? Melts my heart!


This was a dinosaur dig, but Hudson thought it was just the worlds biggest sandbox and he was in heaven!
Until he looked up to see this above his head...

Since we had to leave without finishing, Noni and I took Hudson back today to see more of the museum. Hudson was happy to discover the water room. I will admit that we had to carry him out of there kicking and screaming (literally) because he was getting so wet!!!

He almost had the idea with the stick horse! I just crack up every time I look at this picture!!!
He saw big kids riding the tricycles and just had to do it himself. He was really walking and pushing the handles. Too cute!

The finale of the day was discovering the GIANT bubbles that Noni made. The boy was in awe!
SUCH a fun museum. If you haven't been, you have to take your little one. Hudson did actually cry (and scream) and say no and please while we were leaving because he wanted to stay. It was pretty cute! (And a little embarassing!!)
