Now onto our trip .... it was our first time at MOSI and we really enjoyed it! Our first stop was the Dinosaur exhibit; I think all the kids were wide-eyed during this portion of the trip ... the dinosaurs were animatronic. Kelty's favorite bathtub toy is his dinosaur and even though I know he didn't associate the two I was anxious to see his reaction.
All the little stinkers!

After the play area we took an elevator ride up the to the IMAX theatre ... we all fit in nicely! The IMAX movie featured the Grand Canyon and the deteriorating state of the CO River. The film featured a group of researchers and a guide rafting down and documenting the CO River. It reminded me of the 1 week rafting trip I took to the Canyonlands in UTA with my Advanced Science class in high school! I'd love to do something like that again when Kelty is old enough! Kelty was tired by the time we hit the IMAX movie and instead of watching the film he fell asleep cuddled against my chest; it was so precious. This is something he never does and I just loved having him snuggled up against me ... I could have stayed there forever!

After the IMAX movie and lunch Kelty and I along with Katey and Evangeline decided to stay and check out the rest of the museum. The kids stayed very content!
Strollers on Mars! Maybe we'll have an astronaut in the family after all!
I took Pogo to the vet for his Senior Wellnes Exam and vaccinations last week. Pogo has been having some problem with his front and hind legs ... we decided to get Pogo an extensive and expensice wellness check ... $588! No typos there folks ... it was $588! I got a phone call from his vet Tuesday with the results of his x-rays and lab work. Just as Al and I had thought ... poor little Pogo is having issues. Pogo has a degenerative joint disease in both his front left and back right knees, luxating patela in his left knee, fluid on his right knee, and arthritis in his right ankle. These issues were not the vets biggest concerns ... the biggest concern is the possibility of a degenerative cervical spine disease and a herniated disc. Our next visit will be with a neurologist and orthopedic specialist and the Florida Vetrinary Clinic. Right now Pogo is on medication to ease his discomfort. Please send your prayers for Pogo ... he's a special little guy in our life! So is little Piper!
