Missoula fun with Callie

I had volleyball camp last week (which was a lot of fun!) Luckily we had no plans for the weekend. Our pal Callie got us some Jurassic Quest tickets, and we headed off to Missoula Friday afternoon when Kyle was done with work. Teague needed a rest. They all came to camp with me that morning. Then we went to a birthday party at the Jumparoo!
We ate at Johnny Carino's that night and then went to Target. Callie had to try these bandannas on them! I'm not sure where these gang signs come from. They appear to want peace though.
We went to the Uptown Diner the next day to fuel up for a day amongst dinosaurs. I had been there once before a long time ago, and it reminds me of the "Peach Pit" from Beverly Hills 90210. It was delicious though. Teague really really enjoyed his milkshake.
It was kind of overcast, but not cold. We made the trek from Callie's hotel across the bridge to the campus. Her work is in a great spot. Gotta pose on a cool bike sculpture!
The river was high! I love the Blackfoot river. It reminds me of our house in Lincoln. We would take walks with Dad to the river and throw rocks in it. It's very pretty.
It's time! Teague was being a raptor I think. Ave is guiding. Carter is cool. Teague had to wear his new Jurassic World shirt from Target. It was a bit large!
These giant dinosaur heads amuse me! Teague is in a T-Rex mouth.
Ave hamming it up!
They were pretty big!
Carter went for the Carnotaurus. I have learned a lot about dinosaurs, but I'm still way behind my kids!
Carter found the Spinosaurus right away! His favorite!
The Allosaurus, a deadly carnivore.
The Utahraptor is the biggest raptor by far. It had some cool feather too.
Ave and Teague checking out the Velociraptors.
Ave's favorite, the Triceratops. These all moved and made sounds too. It's really cool. It was also a perfect day for it. Last year was so packed and really hot. This year we got to do all the cool stuff we missed last time.
Teague's favorite, the T Rex, was right by the Triceratops.
Ave did a cute little craft. The boys wandered with Kyle to see what else was around.
This guy walked around with a baby dinosaur that moved. He came right up behind Carter and surprised him. It was very cute, and he let everyone pet it.

Callie said there were no signs that adults couldn't be on the dinosaurs!
Kyle took Teague to the Jumpy houses while Ave and Carter did the bungee cord thing. They got a good workout on this thing!
Carter tried to use the side to help.
It didn't really work!
Ave in mid-jump on this huge bouncy house thing. A kid could get lost in there!

Teague doing a fake smile.
Ave and Callie went in for some waters. Carter took a turn riding the Baryonyx.
Teague finally did too. Ave and Carter went on a Pachycephalosaurus before (I need to get the pictures from Kyle), and he wanted no part of it. He loved it though. He said it was very squishy!
We got to see the Walking Dinosaurs too! This thing was cool! Carter, Teague, and I raced down to see it.
Our buddy Callie, we can't thank her enough. We had a blast last weekend!
We hit the Dram Shop afterwards. They have an area for kids to play, and our grapefruit beer was delicious!
Kyle was really looking forward to Krispy Crème and Coldstone. He got his wishes! The kids agreed it was tasty. Thanks again Cal! You are the best!
