Field Trip

Dalen had his first grade field trip to the dinosaur park. Nothing like 92 first graders all crammed on one bus. I was smart and drove myself there. We got to make Utah Raptor masks in the education center.

Then we got to go inside and explore the museum. We watched as some of the archaeologists looked through silt and sand for fossils. We also got to look at all the cool gemstones, fossils, and dinosaur bones. Then we got to watch the automated dinosaurs. I think this was the boys favorite part, of course.

Then we got to explore the park which was decorated for Halloween. The kids loved all the bones hanging from the trees and coffins with "dead" bodies inside. Dalen got to play by the Jack-o-Lanterns with Blake and played dead in the dungeon with Tiernan. The sign on the bars was put there just for them! By then they were ready for some free time on the playground (I think the teachers and I were too). It was a great field trip and we didn't even lose anyone along the way!
