On Saturday we went on a car ride in the morning like we usually do. This time it was really long though. I went to sleep and when I woke up, we were still driving! We had driven to a place called Springfield, which is somewhere west of where I live. Actually, pretty much everything is west of where we live, but this was really west.

The first thing we saw was some big metal creatures. Mommy said they were by somebody called Dr. Seuss. I have a couple of his books, but I haven't seen these guys yet...

This is the Lorax. I didn't like him so much. I tried to run away from his mustache beard.

Dr. Seuss National Memorial
Here we are with the Cat in the Hat. That's Dr. Seuss sitting with his foot on the table, which I like to do too.

Those statues were in the yard outside this big building, the Springfield Museum of Science. Inside I got to see lots of stuffed animals and also fishies, which I really liked.

There really were fishies in here

After eating the biggest sandwich I've ever seen, my parents took me to the basketball museum. I wasn't so excited by those exhibits, but there were a few I liked.

This is mommy's foot inside of Bob Lanier's size 22

Slam dunk!
And here I am dunking on a 10 foot basket. Daddy had to jump really high to get me up there.

That was pretty much it for Saturday. I was spent, and we drove over to a nice hotel for the night. It had a wading pool and everything, but too bad we didn't bring swim trunks. Next time, I think I'll have to pack for myself.

Tomorrow, giant grapes and the Hancock Shaker Village.
