Jurassic Park - Sort Of

While everyone was in town for the Annual Tims' Family Reunion, we headed down to Glen Rose to check out Dino World.  It was stinkin' hot, but the kids had fun digging for fossils and checking out all the dinosaurs. 

I think they had more fun feeding the fish than anything...

They each got to keep 3 fossils from their "Dino dig"...

The playground was also a big hit... 

The kids had fun learning about the dinosaurs.... although, I'd never heard of most of the dinosaurs they had.  What happened to triceratops?  How about you don't use the scientific names at a kids' Dino park?!

Zoo Crew

What do you do when it's 110 degrees outside?  Torture yourself by going to the Zoo!  I have to admit that the FW Zoo, although 95% outdoors, does a great job of making you not miserable.  We started early, stayed in the shade, and save the MOLA and other inside exhibits for the heat of the day.  It was one last family fun activity before going back to work.  I love it that the kids act like its the first time they've been to the zoo each time we go.... oh to see things through the eyes of a child. 


They have a new outdoor education center and the kids got to see some of the animals up close and personal...

The kids always love to feed the birds.  This time one landed on my arm... they thought I was a rock star!

While visiting the MOLA, they got a lesson about some rare, unique turtle that I can't pronounce the name of. 

It was a hot, but really fun day!  Rylan tagged along and was a total trooper.  By the end of the day, we were all ready for a nap! 

Despite the heat, the Zoo continues to be one of my favorite summer activities!
