DINOSAURS!

The days leading up to the 4th of July, our famly traveled to the land of Dinosaurs for a Christensen family campout (Steve's family). That's Vernal, Utah, for those wondering. We had a lot of fun visiting, picnicking, swimming, hiking, and camping. I didn't think to take pictures as much as I should have, but I did remember to bring our camera on our hike at Dinosaur National Monument. So, here's some photos from the hike.

Cool rock formation above.

Lily and her cousins played with some toy dinosaurs while the park ranger gave us interesting information about the fossils and formations that we were hiking amongst. Below is a picture I took of a dino bone embedded in the mountainside. I think the ranger said that it was an arm bone of a very large teenage dinosaur.

It's fun being around cousins.

It's really fun to have those Christensen reunions for sure! I see Lily's cousins growing up so fast and I so enjoy watchin' them stay as precious as they come! I become sad, too as I look at the pictures and realize that even our little granddaughter Lily in the pic once used to be a baby her cousins would love to hold! I am missing Lily's baby years... and they do come with grandma tears.
