And There He Is!!

Friday my grandson, Arai, had his Pre-K graduation ceremony (due to his birthday he will be doing another year of Pre-K).  Although it was a small service visibility was limited, since the graduates were short.  However, I was able to capture his GREAT smile between a couple of out of focused parents.

Field Station: Dinosaurs

I first heard about Field Station Dinosaurs about 2 years ago.  So today my family and I decided to go and check it out.  The reviews online were so so but I took the chance any way.  I am glad that I was not influenced by some of the reviews.

Field Sation: Dinosaurs is a good place to visit and perfect for children 8 and under and adults who are still children at heart.  We had a GREAT time.

Here are just a few pictures.

Scientists believe that the horn on the Parasaurolophus made noise so that it could alert others of danger, mating, and possibly when it was in pain.

 

There are things for the kids to do for additional fun, some cost extra money and others do not.

I hope you enjoyed the dinosaurs and as always, thanks for visiting!

 

Fun in the rain

My photograph of Arai playing in the rain (click the link to see more) was  selected to be in the local newspaper, Courier-Post, for one of this weeks featured photos.  Hundreds of photos come in each week and I am honored to be chosen.

When Mom-mom is the Sitter….FUN HAPPENS!

Arai and I spent some time together today on another Adventure.  It is a rainy day here in New Jersey and he needed to release some of his pent-up energy for the sake of everyone else’s sanity.  So I took him to one of his favorite places, the woods, which we refer to as an Adventure.

Here are a few quick pictures that I was able to capture when he slowed down a bit.

                          Look at the happiness on that face!

This is something that his mother would never let him do and since I am Mom-mom she can’t fuss at me for allowing and encouraging it….LOL

Doing the Happy Dance to be in the woods again!

Another memory created.

Mr. Pete and Arai

The area that I live in is fairly rural.  There are farms and a couple of horse ranches in my little town.  I have been telling Arai that we will top by one soon.  Well today is the day that we went to see the horses.  We went to the ranch that is about a mile from our home, Arai was so excited during our short little ride.

The owner of the Ranch is Mr. Pete.  Mr. Pete took time with Arai to explain a few things about horses, like how he should not approach a horse and how a horse sees (since eyes are on he side of the head).

Arai was excited and cautions at the same time.  Here are just a few of our moments.

The Adventure Begins – Arai and Mr. Pete

Mr. Pete was really nice and took the time to explain and answer his questions.  He even helped me.  I always thought that a pony was generic name for all young horses but I have been corrected.  A Pony is a type of horse, a foal is a baby horse one year or younger, a colt is a young male horse and a filly is a young female horse.

 

Another moment created for my grandson.

A Calvin Klein Model and Shelly

We were stuck in the house yesterday morning as it was raining here in New Jersey.  While cleaning the kitchen I noticed a turtle out the window.  So needless to say I had to photograph it.  Before I go get my camera I showed Arai and he is also on the same page as me and said “we need to take a picture of it”. He is truly becoming a “mini me”.

I was in my PJ’s and slippers and  Arai only had on his boxes and t-shirt.  He hurried up and got his umbrella and his mothers flip-flops and came running outside with me.

Could he be the next model for Calvin Klein?

 

We took loads of pictures of the cute little turtle and Arai decided to name him/her Shelly.

 

Arai worried that Shelly would get hit by a car.  I debated on keeping it as a pet but decided against it.  This is a wild animal and probably would die in a short while if it were to suddenly be confined.  So Shelly is still wild and free and alive.  He was still out this morning.

A Thief has been Captured

I have been filling up the bird feeder almost everyday.  I thought that Arai was playing with it and causing the seeds to spill out.  He kept saying that he did not do it, but I know that he plays in this tree.

I filled the feeder about an hour before this little thief was captured.  Arai called me to tell me that there is a squirrel and the he is eating he seeds.

 

The thief has been captured!

A Table and a Chair

What could be dangerous about a table and chair?  When it comes to Arai, anything can be dangerous especially when he is being super busy and attempting to “hide” from Mom-Mom.

He went down a little too fast and too hard.  For his troubles he got a little knot on his forehead.  But that was not the end.

After hitting his head he decided to get down.  This is when he and the chair went tumbling to the ground.

In the end Arai and the furniture were ok, no more bumps.

In Honor of…..

….EARTH DAY

My shadow also known as my grandson Arai, was helping me pull weeds in the flower bed today.  He wants to do what mom-mom is doing but his attention span needs to be a bit longer.  I did more calling him back to help me finish me then he actually worked.  He is a work in progress….

Rainbow Colors

Let’s Just Blow Bubbles

SOMETIMES . . .
Let’s just blow bubbles,
For no good reason
Let’s just blow bubbles,
Laugh a little, watch them disappear
Not even wonder where.
Smile and touch the rainbow colors
Watch them float in the air.
No reason why–
No goals, no structure.

SOMETIMES . . .
Let’s just
blow bubbles.
