Dinosaur Park

On August 12th my mom and I took the boys to Dinosaur Park. We were trying to think of a few fun things to fit in before school started back up & my mom had to go back to work. So, since Noah has been really into dinosaurs lately, we thought that would be a fun excursion. During the drive up to Dinosaur Park, Noah fell asleep...this didn't surprise us since it was the middle of the day. However, when we went to get him out of the car he was burning up and didn't feel well. Poor guy. I gave him some Tylenol and we decided to see if he'd perk up once that kicked in and we were in the park around dinosaur stuff.

Lincoln was off like a rocket (strange, I know) and my mom chased him from exhibit to exhibit while I pushed Noah in the stroller.


Unfortunately Noah didn't perk up. He didn't get out of the stroller to look at any of the dinosaurs, and the poor little guy looked absolutely pitiful.

I had packed lunches for us, and even though Noah wasn't at all interested - Linc, my mom & I snarfed ours down.

There was a gazebo that overlooked a pond with ducks...so of course we had to feed them our leftover bread. Lincoln thought it was a riot. He would toss out a fist full of bread as quickly as we could break off another chunk. I'm sure Noah would have enjoyed doing that too, if he wasn't snoozing away in the stroller. We'll have to go back again soon when Noah can enjoy himself there...that being said, it sure was easy to only be chasing one little guy!

Here's a quick clip of Lincoln throwing bread to the ducks.

You can walk right under this big dinosaur as you enter a playground area of the park (yes, he does have a head). The day was much too hot to play on a playground without shade though...even Lincoln recognized that when he burned his poor little legs going down the hot slide.

Caveman Lincoln.

There was a mister near one of the buildings that we'd walk past periodically to cool the boys down. Lincoln didn't seem to notice it much...here he is just wanting to talk about his "juice":

By the end of our visit, we were all pretty worn out from all the walking and the heat...and poor Noah was still feeling pitifully ill. So, maybe next time we'll stay longer when Noah isn't sick, and while we're enjoying some autumn weather while running around!
Thanks for going with us though, Mom...I know that Lincoln sure enjoyed himself!

my kids have been talking about the Dinosaur park a lot lately (not sure what was triggering the momories) but when Zac saw these pictures he about jumped off his chair! Poor Noah though!
