Dinosaur Zoo-seum

We took my dad to the Museum of Ancient Life at Thanksgiving Point for his birthday. (Because that is what every 50 year-old really wants)

Eli called it the dinosaur zoo-seum.

He carried the map and navigated us around the place.


He was very concerned about seeing "real" dinosaurs, until we explained that they were all dead and skeletonized. 
(Or as E says, "boned-up") 

This little guy was not boned-up, but he is a nice dinosaur.


We saw a stegosaurus


A triceratops


Some T-Rex



and lots and lots of other dinosaurs!









We assembled a giant stegosaurus puzzle


Here is Eli with a giant prehistoric sloth skeleton. Sloths are scary. I'm sorry, they just are. 


Eli was very scared of this shark. He wouldn't get close enough for me to get a picture.


His very favorite dinosaur was this guy:

The brachiosaurus.




His face when he first saw it...



 He loves dinosaurs!


Iris... not so much.
