With the boys being too little, and going to bed/waking up too early, to really go anywhere far on a vacation this year we did a last minute "stay-cation" for our end of summer hurrah!
First we hit up the Putnam museum that extended it's dinosaur exhibit through September. Parker has begun to show interest in dinosaurs...however upon arriving we found life size dinosaurs with teeth as big as him is a little intimidating..he would have rather run out into the parking lot with on coming cars than be in this photo near that T-Rex! Carson, aka the man with no fear, thought it was great!
We went with a general admission vs. the extra dinosaur exhibit ;)
This had better not be a sign of the future!
After a dinner break we headed to Whitewater Junction for an evening swim. A lot less people after 6PM
Parker was tall enough to go down the slides! He hates water in his face/eyes/head. Parker giggled the whole way down and Travis lifted him at the end of the slide to make for a successful 1st trip!
The 2nd trip down (with mom) wasn't so successful! We both went under! Parker was not happy, but was willing to try again...with Travis! The 3rd time down...with Travis both boys went under water...he wasn't very happy about it...ask him sometime about his water slide, he'll let you know ;)
Everyone had a GREAT time and we look forward to making a repeat appearance sooner than later!
The next morning we headed to the Family Museum in Bettendorf.
We are still resting up from our big adventure!
