The Dinosaur Park

I know, I know, it seems there are a lot of Dinosaur activities around here....and there are. I'm assuming one of the reasons is there have been alot of dinosaur fossils excavated in this area.

So, we drove to Cedar Creek, not too far from us, to check out The Dinosaur Park. I was looking for something fun and somewhere we could get a little excercise too. The park advertised to have walking trails plus dino exhibits and activities so that's what I chose for our Sunday activity.

I wasn't sure what to expect. Even though it's not what I expected it was a fun little park.

When we first arrived there we paid our entrance fees and were given a scavenger hunt sheet. We headed to the trail first. The trail was not what I was looking for as far as a workout. It was more of an activity trail. It didn't matter anyway because Summer spotted the wagons at the beginning of the trail and decided she would rather be pulled by the "horse" which was Toby of course. :-)

The scavenger hunt turned out to be pretty fun. We had to find different things like claws, different small prehistoric animals, dinosaur poop, dino bones, etc. so aside from looking at the replicas of dinosaurs we also having to hunt for the hidden objects.

I have to say that I enjoyed this dino display as much as I did the very much advertised Dino Land display that was in Austin for a couple of months. At the Dino Land in Austin they had dino displays there of dinos that I had never even heard of. This place had all your typical dinosaurs like Triceritops, brachiasauras, T-Rex, etc.

Aside from being the "horse" Toby also played the narrator by reading the info from the plaques and testing Summer's dino knowledge.

We took a few pics along the trail.

After we came out of the trail, Summer dug for dino fossils and played on the playground.

Here are couple of shots we got on our way out.

On the way home we saw a dead pig/javelina on the side of the road. I wanted to get a pic of it cause I thought it was funny to see a dead pig on the side of the road but Toby didn't seem to be as amused about it as I was.

Another great day to be thankful for.
