During our week long Thanksgiving break we took a break from the everyday and went camping at Dinosaur Valley State Park. I was a little skeptical what with getting into the 40's at night and being pregnant and sleepy, but away we went. When we drive up we find 2 gigantic dinosaurs roaming the camp. I definitely did not sign up for being hunted and sleeping outside but Milo assured me that he would protect me. So off we went on a hike to find dinosaur tracks and staying down wind of the carnivores. About two hours later 4 soggy shoes from river crossing and a pound of beef jerky later we made it back to camp safe and sound. We ate the heck out of some hot dogs and smores then snuggled in to our sleeping bags as the temperature started to drop. After a fitful nights sleep with 3 people in two sleeping bags and no frostbite we set off on the adventure of taming the giant dinosaurs and having them hold still long enough for us to snap a couple of pics. Camping wasn't so bad after all!
