Dad has a new position at work that is requiring more travel, so we took advantage of his absence and headed to McKinney last Saturday. We met up with Aunt Debbie and Pumpkinhead at the museum. It was so fun to follow the path to find the large, realistic, moving dinosaurs among the plant life. MT was pretty frightened but everyone else loved it! He clung tight whenever we approached one of the beasts.
Most of them roared or growled, moved heads and mouths and occasionally arms. Kirk was a little disappointed - he would have liked to see some real movement. He probably wouldn't have been satisfied if they had chased him. (Boy, that would have been fun to see! Heehee!)
We walked the entire trail twice and parts of it three times. Maggie was impressed with a tree that had been struck by lightning but was still alive. Only the outside edges of the trunk remained, but it was enough to provide nutrition to the branches and leaves.
