Dynamite Dinosaurs

Did you know that Thanksgiving Point is home to the Largest Dinosaur Museum in the World? At least, that’s what the billboard says. So, in an effort to break up the monotony of daily life, Easton and I decided to jump in the car on Saturday and make some new prehistoric friends.

I was pretty pumped to see all of the huge dinosaur bones, but Easton was so fascinated by the posters about dirt and tectonic plates and the separation of Pangaea that I could hardly drag him away. I had to impatiently tap my foot for at least thirty minutes before he was finally willing to move on.

The museum was huge! And I was totally fascinated by all of the exhibits. Sometimes I find it hard to believe that creatures as huge as dinosaurs actually lived on the very same planet that we live on today.

Do you see a resemblance here?

Megalodon. I was beyond terrified by the description of this shark.

Yes, Easton and I are technically adults. But that didn’t stop us from running around taking pictures of ourselves pretending to be eaten by dinosaurs and climbing into exhibits that were supposedly off-limits, all while simultaneously eating blow pops that had previously doubled as walrus tusks.

Other people at the museum may have scoffed at us…but we thought we were absolutely hilarious.

Fun way to break the monotony! And I don't think it makes you a kid to like a museum... I say it makes you SMART!!

It wasn't so much the whole "liking the museum" thing...more the "pretending dinosaurs are eating us" thing.

Don't you just hate it when dinosaurs are trying to eat you ... maybe you guys should have made "afternoon at the museum" ... would have been good.

I just about died when I saw that picture of you with the Blow Pop tusks. Silly girl!! I love you guys, though, and I say that you should keep acting immaturely as long as you can get away with it!!

Hey, we actually almost ended up going there last weekend with the inlaws. It made me think of you:) I am glad my blog is not the only one lacking comments these days. Maybe it's just not cool to comment anymore. I wish I didn't care and could just know that people were at least still reading it. But if there are no comments, then I think readers found it dumb or dull. Anyway, if it weren't for you and Court I'd never have comments anymore!
