Today we took the kids to the local(ish) science center, Imagination Station, to meet Dr. Scott the Paleontologist from the PBS show Dinosaur Train. It’s Book Girl’s absolute favorite show, and she has learned sooo much about dinosaurs since she started watching it. Dr. Scott talked and answered questions for about 30 minutes – his talk was interesting to kids and grownups, and he was great with the kids’ questions. Afterward, he met kids, posed for pictures, and signed autographs. BG was pretty apprehensive for a while (the stupid dog mascot of the science center was hanging around, and he totally freaks her out) but as you can see below, she was thrilled to meet one of her idols. Now she can’t wait to see her new friend on TV.
Did I mention that when she grows up, she plans to be a paleontologist? (“And a mom.”)
