dinos go ROAR!

now i am no expert. BUT, i'm gonna go ahead and call cabazon dinosaurs the best roadside attraction EVER. i mean come on. a 100-ton tyrannosaurus rex with stairs leading to the inside of its mouth? done. so when our friends suggested we stop by on our way home from idyllwild it was a no brainer.

the boys had fallen asleep on the way, and for like a nano second we debated whether to wake them up until we were like we totally have to. i will never forget gently nudging max and asking him if he wanted to go see some dinosaurs? he woke up so fast, eyes huge and couldn't get out the car fast enough. clearly he had been waiting his entire life for someone to ask him that question.

we did get suckered into the gift shop but dude these pink egg chairs? and knox in that egg? priceless!

and finally, dinos, or roars! as max calls them. he probably asked me if they were roars a hundred times and then told me they are scary! but a good scary? maxwell you are a riot i say!

totally not an accident how well my sweater went with our surroundings :-)

and then... the mouth of the t-rex. he had no idea what he was running into. halfway up the tiny stairs he made me carry him the rest of the way up. NO PROBLEM! mama works out.

..and then he FREAKED OUT.

knox did not.

i took full advantage of this wind hair situation. sorry max!

and another attempt at the family photo. crushing it, yea?!

and we're out. despite max's objections (SCREAMS) to the contrary. don't worry max, we will definitely be back. it was DINO-MITE!
