We spent an hour at the new exhibit in Union Station, "Dinosaur's Unearthed". The kids loved it! They got to see huge dinosaurs up close, and even were able to turn a few heads there. There were a select few dinosaurs that had a control panel that the kids could play with. You could choose a button that would move either the dino's head, tail, or body. I think this was the highlight for the kids.
The kids loved to pretend they were scared!
I just want to say, it's not my fault that Ariel and Stefanie don't know how to stand perfectly still like the dinosaur statues!
One of the things I found most interesting here, they had a lot of the dinosaurs covered in hair. They said after some new research they believe that a lot of the dinosaurs were not just made of reptile skin, but hairy! It brings a whole new look to Dinosaurs!
Everyone put on your scary Dinosaur face!
After finishing this exhibit, I found that I have a totally different perspective on life than my children. They ran around from one display to the next, very excited to see real, roaring, moving dinosaurs. I walked around thinking the whole time, did I really just pay $32 to have the privilege of walking through here? If only I could still see through the eyes of a child, and not be weighing the cost of the activity. Sometimes it's better to just enjoy it, rather than critique it!
