Dinosaur Museum

Tonight my family decided to take all of the kids to the BYU dinosaur museum. It was really crowded and I spent the entire time trying to chase a hyper 2 year old through swarms of people, which is hard to do when you have a 3ft protrusion on the front of your body. It was a lot of fun though and the boy loved spending time with his cousins.

Posing under a big skeleton.

Cute kids in the jaws of the beast. I think Calvin cracked this statue towards the end of the night when he kept trying to climb it. Oops.

When I was taking the previous picture, Calvin was standing in front of whatever this is yelling "cheese! cheese!" He obviously wanted a photo of himself, so there you have it...

Checking out the lab and the woman inside cleaning bones.

Scoping out fossils.

The whole group.

After the museum we went into the parking lot and had donuts. Here the kids are enjoying a treat while sitting on grandpa's tailgate.

Poor Bek. They came from VA to visit in mid-October. Not long after they got here, Bek was playing basketball with the boys and ripped her ACL and a few other bad things. She had to be on bed rest for several days and is just now making it out and about. I feel so bad for her. She had been in the process of training for a marathon, and now she's stuck at her in-laws doing physical therapy and wondering when she'll get to go home. She's a good sport though, and secretly I'm so happy to have them around for such a long visit.

Carrie playing Simon Says with the little kids in the dark parking lot. They had a great time, and Calvin especially loved it - he really got into the spinning and marching.

Good baby who never ever cries. Even in the dark, cold night with the crazy people spinning and eating donuts instead of just going home or some place warm.

Calvin and his donut.

Luckily I had blankets in the car. Happy kids talking about dinosaurs and enjoying the night time picnic.
