Dinosaur Valley State Park

We've wanted to go to Dinosaur Valley State Park for a long time and finally made it up there.  Unfortunately, it was after some very heavy flooding so the river was raging and we weren't able to see the dinosaur tracks.  Still, it was a great state park, small and quiet, pretty cedar trees everywhere, lots of wildlife, and some great trails.  We'll have to go back another time to see the tracks and hike on the trails across the river (which we couldn't cross because it was so wild).

The dinosaurs from the World Fair back in the 60's.

Randy and I with T-Rex.

We happened upon this cool treehouse pavilion while on a hike.

Brady just hanging out.  Hehe.  ;-)

There's nothing like reading in a tree.

Dawson enjoying some outdoor reading time too.

The awesome cedar trees.

Playing at the playground.

Big, giant Dawson.


Brady can spend hours on the swing.

How I found the kids when I came back from an early morning run - reading together in bed.  I had to capture the moment.

Taking in the river.  Usually, you can walk down the steps and splash in a little stream.

Instead of the peaceful river, there were river rapids.  It was actually really fascinating.

Sitting and enjoying the view (and in Brady's case, being a goofball).

He's so adorable!
