Visiting the dinosaurs

As I mentioned in the last post, we had friends here for the weekend. One of Grant's best friends since first grade, Mike, and his wife Rachel and baby Bella (4 months) were en route to Myrtle Beach, S.C. from Maryland and stopped by to visit for a couple of days. We took them to the Living Museum with us on Saturday and got to experience the brand new exhibit of robotic dinosaurs.
The kids' reactions were quite different. Corban was in wide-eyed awe, and just a little frightened by the whole thing. Marissa was completely entertained and gleeful about all the new creatures.

As Marissa studied this scene of several small, vicious dinosaurs ripping apart a larger plant-eater sort, she commented about the small ones, "Look Daddy! They're so CUTE!" Hardly the reaction you'd expect from a small child.

Pretty amazing stuff! We all decided we're very glad dinosaurs aren't around today.
