Blaze was so excited to go to the museum today to see Dr. Scott, the paleontologist from the PBS series Dinosaur Train.
There were several other dinosaur activities going on at the museum, as well, but Blaze wasn't really interested in doing any of those. He just kept talking about seeing Dr. Scott in real life.
He wasn't the only child excited about this. The room was packed.
The children were shown an episode of Dinosaur Train about feathered dinosaurs who lived in the far north.
Here are a couple short clips from that episode:
After Dr. Scott talked some more about how birds are dinosaurs, the children got to meet Buddy, the young T-Rex from the show.
After the Dinosaur Train show, we did a little exploring around the museum.
PBS also has on-line activities to go with Dinosaur Train:
