Lizzards and Dinos and Rabbits, Oh My!!

So Saturday I was feeling a little brave, and decided to take the kids to Ogden's Dinosaur Park. It was free that evening, and we needed to get out of the house. (Nathan's been in New Zealand for those of you who don't know) The kids had a blast - of course!! As soon as we got there we saw this . . . There is an Iguana in the window, if you can't tell. The boys were mesmerized. Then we saw rabbits. Yes I know, a dinosaur park with rabbits? I'm not sure what the connection is there, but again the kids thought it was great. I don't have a picture of them. The camera I've been left with is STUPID. Nathan took the better one with him. Then we walked the trails with the dinos. The boys are just starting to love dinosaurs, so it was fun hearing them comment on how big, or sharp, or pointy, or long, the dinosaurs were. This is how much fun Elijah had. . . ha ha. I promise, he really is a happy baby.
If you notice in this picture Van has his fingers in his ears. . . That's because they have speakers around the park that play "dino sounds". He didn't ever really get used to that. Noah and Vance do not like loud sounds. (Taking them to the movies is torture for them) After the park, we were all so hot. We had record heat that day. So, I took the kids to 7-11 for their first Slurpee's. That was great, the kids were amazed, and in love. The boys even swapped their flavors with each other half way through, so that they could taste what the other one had. I was amazed at that. They realized that their tongues were colored, and Van kept asking what flavor (color) his tongue was. The word stuck, and now Slurpee's are called "Flavors". Silly. It was a fun evening. I suppose I'll have to come up with a couple more outings for this week, to keep us entertained. Check back for more photos.
