PAWTUCKETâ€”As her classmates spun Hula Hoops and danced to a deejay, 11-year-old friends Nychelle Torres and Bobbie Walls sampled blueberries and pomegranates. â€śBlueberries are good with honey on them,â€ť Torres stated. The two said they had also enjoyed making their own salsa out of a buffet table of different ingredients provided by Farm Fresh Rhode Island. â€śThe salsa was good, except for some of the spicy tastes,â€ť Torres added.
PROVIDENCE â€“ Eight-year-old Estuardo Estrada of Providence stares up into the beady eyes of a Triceratops, a three-horned, plant-eating dinosaur that roamed the earth 65 million years ago.
Illuminated by overhead multi-colored lights, the beastâ€™s head â€“ boasting the largest skull of all land mammals â€” suddenly moves from side to side, itâ€™s short, pointed tail wagging in unison.
The creature suddenly lets out a roar, startling Estrada and the crowd of other junior paleontologists standing nearby.
Wide-eyed and breathless, Estrada grips the hand of his stepfather Gabriel Vargas.
