But the fun really began with the big dinosaurs. They boys could hardly control their excitement as they raced around the museum.
Having their cousins along made it that much more fun. Here they built a dinosaur from the various heads, legs and tails that were hanging on the wall. Who knew this dinosaur would turn and eat them!
We spent a significant amount of time learning about errosion in this hands-on exhibit. The kids built dams and canals, hills and valleys and then watched them get washed away. I'll admit I had a little fun myself at this exhibit.
This was a shocking exhibit, especially coming around the corner and not expecting it! Definitely a big fish.
Another dinosaur dining experience.
It's no wonder why the dinosaurs were eating our kids. They weighed in at a whopping 300 hundred pounds! Not bad for 6 energetic boys.

Michelle takes Quinten in and has one of the longest well check-up visits ever. She told me later that the doctor was working with a medical student/PA who was brand new and was being shown the ropes. So the PA would do the first exam and report to the doctor. The doctor would then recheck to verify the PA's findings.
The PA completely missed the blazing obvious double ear infection in my son and the doctor took the time to explain and diagram what was going on so they wouldn't miss it in the future. That's great but not when we want our son treated promptly. At least they found out what was wrong.
So Quinten is on his very first round of antibiotics and finished another round of immunizations (3 shots). All in all, he hasn't had a very good day. At least he's on the road to recovery and should start feeling better soon.

A boys barracks has been announced in east Provo as the Jones family eagerly anticipates the arrival of baby boy #6. The arrival of the new child has been known for some weeks now but there was a lot of speculation as to the gender of the new arrival. The speculation was laid to rest on Thursday when Dr. Young made the announcement.
"I thought it was going to be a girl!" said a surprised Michelle upon learning that she was going to be the proud mother of yet another stripling warrior. "This pregnancy has felt completely different from my other pregnancies. I haven't been as sick, I've had energy and I haven't felt 'big' with this one," Michelle said.
"I was hoping for a little princess," Khayyam told the press, "but somehow I kinda knew that we would have another boy."
Both parents expressed some disappointment that a little baby girl does not seem to be in their future but they are excited about the adventures they'll have with six sons. Stay tuned for more exciting updates as this story unfolds.
