Making Memories at Dinotown {and a Giveaway}

To Rianne, I am writing this to remember how much fun you had the day we went to Dinotown.  You were only 2 yrs. old and Ryan was 8 mos. old.

Last Saturday, Daddy drove us to Cultus Lake, Chiliwack to see Dinotown.  The day before, I’ve already been telling you that we are going to see dinosaurs and that tomorrow will be a fun day! I can see how excited you are. And I love it! You are a smart kid and full of fun and excitement.  On the day, I dressed you up making sure you wear your most comfortable stretchy pants, cotton long sleeves to protect you from the sun or the chill.. we live in Vancouver, and we learn to have fun, rain or shine, dry or wet, hot or cold.  On the way to the car, I push your brother with the stroller as I sing to you, “we’re gonna see some dinosaurs!” and you run to the car as cutely as you can be.  You are a funny little girl. Super cute.  You probably are wondering what the day will be.  You fell asleep on the way and we woke you up when we arrived. As usual, you are still in dreamland trying to figure things out. lol. I pushed the stroller once more with you and your brother..

And then the fun begins..

We were greeted with Daddy’s friends (at this age, you like saying the word “fwends” and you are getting the concept.  You are very friendly!) and you, always independent as you are went around and explore, trying the mini golf, touching the dinosaur sculptures, looking at other kids, observing.

And you made good friends!

And then we went further to see the 5-acre land of fun where you saw gigantic inflatable dinosaurs, water slides, bouncy castles, kids zipline, giant maze, pedal cars, paddle boats a doll house, swings, slides and many many more fun stuff!

At your age, what you enjoyed the most is the meet and greet with the dinosaurs, the dinosaur show, the parade where you happily shake your pom poms, and your special time dancing with the dinosaurs.  I was so happy to see you interacting, following and having fun.  I can see your mind at work full of curiosity.

And here’s a video of you dancing with the dinosaurs to the tune of Tailor Swift’s famous song! You are just adorable! This for me is the highlight of that day!

And then to finish the day, of course you wouldn’t say no for some good ice cream!

And of course you finished it so quickly..

Gone! So Quickly!

And we are one silly family!

Under the Dino’s claws!


Ryan and Mommy had lots of fun too!
