Because I love them I took them to Silver Spring, MD today to see Chompy! My brother-in-law works for Discovery and Shark Week is Discovery's thing. For several weeks leading up to Shark Week, there is a shark on the building and his name is Chompy. I must admit, it was pretty darn cool to see a shark (it is huge) on a building in the middle of a city.
Of course, being me and being with Kelsey we made a total outing of seeing Chompy! First, a stop at IKEA. Do not go there with children. Elena got into one of the beds and tried to go to sleep. Next was lunch at Chick Fil A. After a treat of some FroYo for dessert we were off to see Chompy.
Because Scott works at Discovery we were able to get inside the building. The lobby is amazing. There is a cool triceratops, a real mammoth tush, motorcycles, a large dinosaur replica, and this really cool "Mouse Trap" like thing.
