Sunday,March 2nd, 2008

Well it's cold and snowy here today. Yesterday it was 70 and sunny. We probably have at least 4 inches of snow.

Yesterday was a beautiful day, felt like Spring had arrived. After much persuading by Connor we drove up to Dinosaur Ridge. It's a place in Morrison, not very far from us. It's part of the Morrison formation. There are visable dinosaur and plant fossils in the rocks. there are also real imprints of dinosaur tracks. We hiked up a trail and explored a little. It was nice to be outside getting fresh air.

A couple of weeks ago the boys had a science fair at their school. Alex's was a group project. He did a great job explaining it but I can't remember now what it was exactly (being the scientific person I am..haha) It was something to do with an egg and vinegar and the shell disolving. Connor did his project on, you'll never quess.............Dinosaurs! It was titled "The Cretaceous period....the deadliest time of all". He worked hard on it but enjoyed presenting it. It was easy for him to present because he could talk about prehistoric stuff 24 hours a day.
