A Snow Day Question Frenzy with a Dino Loving 3 Year Old

As Joey celebrated his record setting 16th snow day for the 2013-14 school year, I decided to take this opportunity to observe him and his lifestyle a tad more closely.  What unfolded I will describe here in the best way that I can, by writing verbatim his proclamations, questions, and comments that occurred over the course of a very short time span.

So without further ado here are Joey’s thoughts, concerns, and wonders about the 29 minute episode of Spirits of the Ice Forest from the widely unpopular Walking with Dinosaurs, not to be confused with the modern, smash hit Walking with the Dinosaurs.  Oh and did I forget to mention that along with being obsessed with dinos, he has also taken a liking to talking non stop, especially during TV programming.
