Three Stuffed Animals Visit the Field Museum

If you're friends with me on Facebook, you may already be familiar with Stan, Rex, and Oscar, three stuffed animals we bring with us on trips, photograph in unusual locations, and give funny lines. Oscar, the orca, is the oldest; we got him on our honeymoon when we started this tradition. Stan (the green T-rex) and Rex (the brachiosaurus) were adopted from the Field Museum for Alex. The three stuffed animals got to come with us to Members' Night at the Field Museum, and they had a blast (or should I say we had a blast with them.) Here are a few highlights:

 Stan: "I am Stan, the God of carnivores! Hear me roar."

Rex: "Should we bow?"

Oscar: "Are you kidding? He's got a big enough head as it is!"

 Stan: "What? How could it go on without us?"

Rex: "It probably wasn't as fun."

Oscar: "Yes, I am a prime example!" 

  Stan: "NOT funny!"

Rex: "Not funny at all!"

Stan: Murderers!
Rex: Wrong meteorites, Stan.

Stan: Recognize anyone?
Rex: Nope.
 Stan "Hey! This wasn't on the agenda today!"

Oscar & Rex (laughter off screen)

Can't wait until you guys start doing live action video. :)

This made me smile. Thanks.

Pat, we're lucky we're not that far from the Field Museum.

Maria, I'm not sure how well that would go over.

Jennifer, I'm glad you enjoyed it!

I love it! More stuffed animals should travel the world.

Oscar has also been to London and Japan, but since he was solo, he didn't get any lines.

I'm jealous of creatures with big heads. I have a super tiny head. Really tiny. No one believes me until I tell them to try to put my hat on and then they get this shocked look.
