Hank underground

My aunt Terri and uncle Sam and cousin Hank were in town this weekend for a visit, and we had a blast! We spent Saturday afternoon at the zoo. We saw a hyrax in a tree, and Hank observed that if he was on the ground, he would be a low-rax. We also watched a grumpy old gorilla grab a helmet, climb to the top perch where everyone could see her, and slowly pee into the helmet. Then, as everyone in the crowded viewing area screamed "No!! Don't do it!!", she slowly raised the helmet to her mouth and proudly drank every last drop. Then she lowered the helmet and stared at us with a look that said, "Are you shocked now? Yeah, that's right, I'm hard-core!"

Then today, Sunday, Hank took his first Metro ride to the Museum of Natural History! Check it out...

Waiting for the train:



Here it comes!




All aboard!





At the museum...



Hank and Terri, learning about diplodocus or, as Hank dubbed the long-necked dinosaur, giraffe-osaur or giraffe rex.

Ready for the 3D Imax!
