Dinosaur Valley

Day two of our mini-vacation was spent in the actual Dinosaur Valley State Park.   We waded through dinosaur tracks and learned all about those large creatures who lived here before us.  There was lots of water involved, so the boys were, again, in heaven!

We took this trip to celebrate our daddy for Father's Day.  He's the best daddy in the world and we feel so fortunate to be his family.  We knew what he would want more than anything in the world was time with us (because, really, who wouldn't?) so we planned a trip away from it all!

While Stone and Holden swam with daddy, Cash stuck close to mom.  I took the time to teach him how to do laundry in the river... usable skills are the most important!

Cash DOES mind getting his hands dirty, and he wasn't shy about letting me know it!

On our way out of the park, we stopped by the full size replicas of a T-Rex (just like Buddy from Dinosaur Train) and a Brontosaurus.  It was a great learning experience for the boys, the size made a big impact!

I remember going to Dinosaur Valley when I was really, really little. Fun memories! Looks like y'all made some last memories, as well!

It looks like y'all had a blast! Thanks for documenting it so well. I am definitely filing it away for future vacation ideas!
