We went to OMSI today to check out the Dinosaurs: China's Ancient Giants exhibit. The boys loved seeing all the fossils, skeletons, and animated dinosaurs. The favorite was the 65-foot long, 21 foot high Mamenchisaurus outside on the sidewalk.

Batter Out? No, fielder out!

Want to know how to have fun on a Friday night? Try 5 hours in the ER! Dave took a line drive to the face last night at softball practice. 5 hours, 1 CT Scan and 8 stitches later we were home at 1:30am. Fun, fun! (all kidding aside, Dave and I decided that this was practically a date for us. We can't remember the last time we had nearly 5 hours of adult conversation with each other.) He's fine; just a big fat eye and a big fat headache today.

The making of a rock star!

These pictures speak for themselves...

In other news, Nate had his 5 year old physical today.
41 1/2 inches tall (50th percentile)
42 lbs (25th percentile)
BP 94/62 (perfect)

He had his vision and hearing tested as well. He hears perfectly, but failed vision pretty bad. Hard to say if he really didn't see well or if he was being Nate (not taking it very seriously), but we are being referred to an eye doc for additional tests.
3 shots today. Pretty traumatic, but nothing a green sucker and a happy meal can't fix.
