This is the first year that I need to deal with the whole back to school ‘thing’ as my daughter is starting Kindergarten next week. Therefore, I wanted to make sure we fit in some daytrips and we began with a trip to Dinosaur Place in Oakland, CT.
I packed up plenty of water & snacks, brought lunch, swimsuits and towels for a fun filled adventure. We began by exploring the trails. They have a new area called the ‘Maze’ that concludes with sliding through a dinosaurs head. Naturally, we had to do that several times.
We continued on all the paths, reading signs about the dinosaurs and peeking into the little ‘birdhouses’ along the way. The birdhouses had some trivia and neat things to touch such as, teeth and eggs.
It was great to discover what my daughter remembered from our trip there over a year ago. It was also neat to see how what they were interested in versus last year. We then embarked onto the ‘Splashpad’ and had a blast.
After drying off and getting dressed, we spent plenty of time in the hot sun on their unique playground. Isabel was determined to concur this giant rope web and refused any help.
