Dinosaur World Field Trip

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.

  1. That looks like fun, I bet G would LOVE that place since he loves all things dinosaur. We'll have to go on a field trip.

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing instead. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; pajamas; La Croix; reading; coffee; podcasts; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; bad hair days; snoring; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); Miracle Whip; scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and working out. I think that sums it up.
