Dinosaurs and Zoo… (part 1)

Well we decided to head up to Glen Rose for Lindsay’s family reunion. We were sad that Gundy (Lindsay’s Grandma) didn’t come, but we did have a great time with the rest of the family. Kai played with Holden (2nd cousin) quite a bit. It is always nice to have another child around to run around with Kai.

This trip was also Kai’s (and Andrew’s) first trip in a hotel.DSCN3862 DSCN3863

Friday night we went to Dinosaur Valley State Park to see the actual dinosaur tracks. It was awesome. I’m sure we are walking where dinosaurs walked all the time, but seeing their tracks is a very cool experience. All the prints we saw were prints of a theropod, which is basically a three toe carnivore.

I also tried to teach Kai and Holden how to skip rocks, but it didn’t go as

smooth as you would think…


The next day we got up and had breakfast then decided to check out an awesome city park that had huge rocks that were once on the bottom of a riverbed.
