This T-rex model was shipped to Texas after its debut at the 1964-65 World's Fair in New York City.
Last week was dinosaur week at our house. (The theme was easy to choose -- Cooper spent the mornings at SMU at Legacy in a dinomania class.) Our weekly field trip was to Glen Rose.
One of the first creatures we drove by at Fossil Rim
We all laughed so hard at this creepy bird, who seemed especially fond of Papa.
We all were a little freaked out when an emu headed straight to Jim's window. Those are some creepy looking birds! They remind me of dinosaurs, actually.
A gentle giant
We traveled a bit farther into the park for a picnic dinner, joined by about 100 uninvited flies. I am definitely not an outdoorsy, camping, roughing it kind of girl. But the food and company were good!
Cooper and Steve found a better river entry and spent a few minutes playing in the water. I was very nervous -- too nervous to remember my camera! -- with the strong current in the river. Cooper can swim, but he's not a strong swimmer yet, and that water was rushing, gushing by.
Cooper easily fits in the track of a dinosaur's foot.
We did stop to see some tracks at the entrance/exit of the park before the journey home, during which we enjoyed Betty's homemade cookies.
The journey's photos are here.
