Back after 65,000,000 years....

I fulfilled the wish of the child in me and went to see Walking with Dinosaurs at the Belgrade Arena. It was everything I thought it would be, and more. They walk, they roar, they 'breathe,' accompanied by sound/video effects; all so real. Read about it on the link above, and if they come to your town, do yourself a favor and go....it's for kids of all ages.

Here you see a pair of towering brachiosaurus (brachiosauri!). The very idea of transporting these babies is overwhelming. There were quite a few very large trucks in the Arena's parking lot.

It is almost like Jurasic Park. Bet that was fun. We should try to indulge the child within, at least sometimes.

Looks like a good turnout too. I bet you'll have a great time talking to your kiddos at school about it. The photo is excellent which I imagine was hard to do.

Wow! They do look real! What a great event. And it looks like the arena was filled.

I wish there was something like this when I was a kid. I used to be a dinosauer freak. Even now it sounds fun.

My son saw this show in Tucson a few months ago and loved it!

It looks almost realistic enough that I would be scared! :)
