While Nate & Shea were in Connecticut for the wedding, we also spent a fun day at an outdoor Dinosaur Place with them and their nephews.  It was very hot so we were glad to be in the woods most of the time, and enjoyed watching the kids play on the splash pad after our long dinosaur walk.

I don’t know the names of these dinosaurs, but Dominic knows ALL of them and he’s only 4 years old!  It was fun seeing this lost world through the eyes and imaginations of the little ones.

    1. What amazes me is that scientists think that birds are actually dinosaurs, the only dinosaurs that didn’t go extinct 65 million years ago. Of course the little ones thought I was talking nonsense!

    1. I hope you don’t have any more problems with the email notifications… The computer sprites seem to be full of mischief in recent days – maybe the heat and humidity are getting to them, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. What a lucky kid you were, Jane! The only dinosaur bones I got to see as a child were in the American Museum of Natural History in New York. I think seeing dinosaur likenesses outside would have been much more fun!

    1. It does make one wonder what life would be like for us now if the larger dinosaurs had survived – it’s hard to imagine when you stand right next to a life-sized model!

  1. How wonderful to meet dinosaurs with the two children! That’s something I miss now that my children are all older. Children find magic in the simplest of moments. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. We’ve been wanting to take some children to this dinosaur place for years, so when Julius and Dominic came to town we made sure to “borrow” them for the occasion! ๐Ÿ™‚
