Each month the kids' school focuses on a different theme, and the theme for March was dinosaurs (which has only increased Rylan's fascination with the creatures). To kick off the month, they organized a field trip to Dinosaur World in Glen Rose, Texas.
We started off our visit by taking the "dinosaur walk," which featured 150 life-sized dinosaurs around the 20-acre property. The kids loved pointing out all the different dinos, and it was truly amazing to imagine those large creatures roaming around back in the day.
Then it was time for a fossil dig.
Followed by a little picnic lunch.
Then the kids ran off some energy on the fun prehistoric-themed playground.
Finally, we made our way through the fossil museum, which also included several animatronic dinosaur displays.
Rylan legit thought that these dinosaurs were real!
Despite the 1.5 hour drive, we had a great time, and I definitely recommend the trip for your dinosaur-loving kids. And between Dinosaur World, Fossil Rim Wildlife Center, and Dinosaur Valley State Park, you could even spend a whole weekend in the cute little Texas town.
