Dinosaur Hill

Two weeks ago Lizzie and Trevor's classes combined for a fun and educational field-trip to 
 We learned all about different types of minerals and how they are used. We also got to touch a fossil of dinosaur poop. The kids got a kick out of that. But I would have to say the coolest was the magnetized rock and the nail. Lizzie was a little nervous but found the courage to try it.

After learning about minerals we hit the trails to see all the dinosaur sculptures. I thought this guy looked like a psycho gopher.

I don't know which is scarier the T-rex or the glare Trevor is giving me.

This was the coolest sculpture of a brachiosaurus. It was "Ginourmous". Trevor, Jack, Liz, and Olivia look up in amazement.

At the top of the hill are these cool sculptures. This was as close as Trevor was going to get to them. He makes me laugh so much. 

Big Hug, Tight Squeeze Lizzie!

Just Hangin' out after collecting out Minerals and playing with the Dinosaurs. Lizzie and Olivia have developed such a sweet friendship. Look at them holding hands. Does it get any sweeter than that?

the minerals and fossils are two different activities. I want to do the fossils with the kids this summer if you're game.
