Monster or Mermaid?

As far as Keaton was concerned, that was the question.
Monster or Mermaid?
The answer: Athena

After Keaton's doctor visit, we decided to do a little sightseeing. We headed over to Centennial Park to visit the Parthenon and to see Athena. After reading the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, Connor has developed an interest in Greek mythology.

 The Parthenon, located in Centennial Park, is impressive in size
 and  is surrounded by a beautiful park.

Connor, being Connor, wanted to read all the signs about the statues. He could easily spot several of the Greek gods he learned about while reading the Percy Jackson books. Sometimes he has a mind like a steal trap and doesn't forget a thing.
We are so very thankful to have a son that enjoys learning.

and on the inside of the same doors.

Although it wasn't the science musuem, the zoo, or an amusement park, we still enjoyed ourselves. Nothing like spending time with those you love!
