Dinosaur Museum

This was Saturday continued...
After Build-A-Bear we went up to Thanksgiving Point to the dinosaur museum. They have done such a good job with the museum and it is such a fun place for the kids, and still really interesting and fun for the adults too.

Parker, Layton, and Tanner. Watching the fish.

They had a little spot for younger kids like Parker to play. It was a big rug that looked like a... jungle? (ummm... what habitat do dinosaurs live in, desert maybe?) anyway, a map. With lots a dinosaurs to play with.
Layton, Tanner, and Sidney. There is a big table with water a sand and plastic dinosaurs and trees. And even plastic aprons for the kids to wear. This was Layton's favorite part. They played and played.

Parker and Grandpa.

Grandma, Layton, and Sidney.

Layton and Parker with the shark. This was for sure the scariest for the kids. It took awhile for them to be brave enough to go near it.

At the very end they have an archaeologist dig. Which is basically a sand box that looks like it is in the desert. The kids have brushes, and there are dinosaur skeletons buried that they uncover with the brushes. This was Parker favorite and one of the only times he could really be involved and roam around where ever he wanted.

All the kids had a great time. We went to dinner at Macaroni Grill (yum, my favorite!) afterwards, to celebrate Uncle Rio, and Uncle Devin's birthdays. Happy Birthday guys! and Thanks again Dennis and Jerri for the fun day.
