So you know you are a Mom when you spend your 30th birthday taking your kids to a Dinosaur show. Well, that is exactly what we did tonight. Gavin has been eyeing Walking with Dinosaurs and really wanted to go. Luckily for him Daddy managed to get us tickets! We had two extra tickets and since my Dad is also in love with dinosaurs we asked my parents to join us. It was amazing to see these creatures that they created to look so real. These creatures walked and moved around the Toyota Center like they had come back from a million years ago. Ellie didn't miss a beat and wasn't scared at all. Although she did ask me a few times before the show started, "dinosaurs can't scratch my neck, right?" She sat on Pepa's lap almost the entire show with her big eyes gazing at these life-like, life-size creatures. Gavin was enamored as well with each dinosaur that entered the arena. He wanted to know what each of their names were and wanted to make sure I got pictures of each and every dinosaur as he wants to show his class pictures. Overall it was a great show and I think the kids will remember walking with the dinosaurs forever!
