This one is for Huxley the paleontologist at Walking with Dinosaurs.

I really hope that wasn’t the last time Walking with Dinosaurs comes to Utah because I love it so much. It’s like the show I got last Christmas called Chased by Dinosaurs, only you’re not watching it on a TV- it’s real! They have a paleontologist that’s like Nigel Marven, only he’s not Nigel Marven, and Nigel Marven is an ornithologist and an adventurer, not a paleontologist. But I think this guy is like Nigel Marven’s helper or something. He wears the same vest.

I really loved going to Walking with Dinosaurs because the dinosaurs are so big and look so real. First they had a liliensternus come out, then an allosaurus. They also had a baby and mom brachiosaurus. It’s cool because how big they were is how big Littlefoot and his grandpa or grandma really would have been. They had ornithocherius and torosaurus and stegosaurus too. I will write more about this tomorrow cause Dadda took some video. It’s ok that he did that, cause he didn’t use flash photography. They said before the show that it bugs the dinosaurs. I’ll have him put the video on my blog tomorrow or maybe the next day.

This one is for Nigel Marven. I was watching him the other other night really late and he was showing how alligators protect their babies.

At the SpookTacular, the kids were watching Nightmare Before Christmas. I love that show so much. I started talking to Simmy about the elections and I asked him who he was voting for. He didn’t say anything, and his dad told me he’s not very interested in voting at his age. I told him I find it quite interesting.

[Dad’s Note: Bridger is 7, Simmy is 6. Weston is 5, and he says he finds it “quite interesting also.”]
