Most weekends Will and Chad go to the Dallas Aquarium. Will knows the lay of the land and switches his favorite animal from the manatee to the crocodile on a regular basis.
This week the manatee was his favorite.
(Chad took this picture with his iPhone 4S. The picture quality is really amazing!)

Will decided the pirates from his water table also needed a bath, so we made a bubble bath outside today. I think he used a whole bottle of palmolive on them so they should be squeaky clean.

We took the DART train to Fair Park which truly was a highlight in it of itself. He loved being on the train and changing trains. I think we could just ride the trains one day and he would be thrilled.
At the fair, he loved the "Little Hands on the Farm" exhibit where he got to help. He fed (fake) hens, delivered food by driving a John Deere tractor, milked a (fake) cow, and planted seeds. In the end, he got a (fake) dollar to spend at the store where he got a bag of Cheetos. He was in heaven.
He also loved riding on the rides at Kidville. Kidville rides are not meant for 5'11" moms and 6'1" dads, but we pretzeled our legs in there and rode with him. He loved it and would have ridden all day if he could have.
Luckily, we lured him away with the petting zoo. They had the cutest baby animals there - donkeys, camels, goats, chicks, alpaca, etc. We fed them all!
We took the train back home and Will was exhausted. He is still talking about the fair today and he tells everyone about Big Tex. I think our trip to the fair will be an annual tradition!
