What is with dinosaurs?
So due to the lack of our vacation, we decided that since we all had "time off" (I'm not quite sure what my time off was from?) we should go somewhere. We decided to try the not-so-local dinosaur mecca this side of vernal. So we bundled the boys into the car, and set of for Lehi. Thanksgiving Point to be more accurate. The museum of ancient life. And although it has many other fascinating exhibits, I think the boys were only impressed with the dinosaurs.
And why not? I mean, dinosaurs are cool...Right? I'm not sure I think of them as such. To me, it is just a great big pile of bones that have been assembled to resemble something scary. We have no idea what they really looked like. It is all just based on BONES. I guess I'm not an enthusiast. I mean, I get it, I just don't GET it. And the weird thing is that I used to. I had planned to grow up and become a paleontologist myself.
I probably shouldn't go into the rant about species, and extinction and all that. It isn't exciting, and is probably pretty radical for any kind of dinosaur lover out there. So I'll just leave you with a few pictures. The museum was awesome, and worth the money in my opinion. We had a lot of fun, even if we weren't camping!
