Cute photo with Oma

Oma came to visit us (aka Silas) in Albuquerque.
Here was a cute picture of the two.

Silas in a Tree

Silas is learning how much he loves to climb trees.

This tree was in the back yard of a rental house we had during Grandmother's birthday.

"Three points of contact!!!"  yells the worried dad.

Ok.  Now I have to get into the tree too.

A video where Silas is hiding in the tree.

Flowers for Grandmother

Here is a fun video of Silas giving Grandmother flowers on her birthday.

Aunt Kim and Taekwando

While we were in Albuquerque, aunt Kim showed Silas some
Taekwando moves.

Silas is just learning, but aunt Kim is a second degree black belt.


Silas Eating

It was quite nice to find some restaurants that could cater to Silas' allergies. 
 Here Silas is enjoying Buca de Beppo's

We were out with Grandmother and many of the Graves' family.

The other side of the table.

Here he is enjoying a sopapilla at another restaurant, Sadie's.

He loves it.



It was Grandmother's birthday at Sadie's.

Creation Museum - Part 3


On the last day we walked around the Creation Museum grounds.

How well they are kept.  I hear it is quite magical at Christmas time.

They have a jungle experience outside the museum.

Here Silas is getting ready for a climb.
 Mum was able to get a few 'action shots' from ground level.

Silas is a natural climber.... Dad, no so much.

Wait for me Silas!



Creation Museum - Part 2

We were able to hear Buddy Davis in concert



The exhibits were fun, but not for my shoulders!

The different scenes were wonderful.

The people were so realistic.

We had a chance to meet up with Ken Ham and Georgia Purdom.

Creation Museum - Part 1

As if we were not in information "overload" after the Ark Encounter,
we spent the next two days at the Creation Museum.

This is the entry foyer to the museum.

We started with a wonderful planetarium movie.

In the entry way, there were some great exhibits.


The museum steps us through the 7 C's of God's eternal plan.

Silas was using the 360 camera while I was reading all the materials.

Silas was able to touch a real fossil

There were great animal exhibits.

Many of them moved.... I felt compelled to feed Silas to this dino.

All the exhibits were so detailed.

There were also many movies.

Ark - Part 6

This is the last post, but there are so many sections and photos I skipped.

Outside the ark, you get a sense of its size.
Silas is that small dot in the bottom centre.

Here are a few fun snaps as we were at the front of the ship.





They had just opened a section for the new zoo area.  Silas had a chance to ride a donkey.

A few more animals to check out.



It was getting late and time to leave.

One more snap...
