Saturday our family took an afternoon drive over to Dinosaur Land - just outside of Dinosaur Valley. The kids got to do a dino dig where they were allowed to keep 3 fossils (sea fossils). Then we went on a walk around the park to see all of the dino statues. They had tons of dinos, it was really cool. We ended inside with a dino museum with real fossils. The kids had a blast and it was great to spend the afternoon on a family outing!
I have included a slideshow at the end with more photos, but I figured I would also include some pictures to high light the day :)

Grant in the play area riding the dino!
Clark really wanted to get on the big swing! He was so cute :)
While we were out walking around Grant would see a dino and say what it was before we even got to the name plate. I was surprised how many times he was right! I guess his dino obsession is paying off :)

At the end of the day the kids got to pick something as a souvenier... well, really the selection was limited because I'm not paying $3 for a tiny toy. Anyway, they all ended up with dinosaurs and Clark got some balls... he was a good sport hanging out in the stroller we figured we'd let him enjoy a toy at the end of it. And, yes, he loved them ;).
It was a fun dino day!
