Today we decided to try a little something different. So we parked the car and rode the MAX into Portland. The kids were insanely excited (I mean, it's a train!) and we only got off at the wrong stop once.
First we hit up OMSI to visit the space exhibit. It was super cool and they even had Samson--the second largest T-Rex ever recovered.
Then we hopped back on the train and headed to the Rose Quarter. Because we were about to Walk With Dinosaurs!!!
You've seen the TV show, right? Well they made it into a life size arena event. It freaking rocked! At one point a baby dinosaur was eaten and my daughter started crying, but other than that she enjoyed herself.
But I have to admit, my eyes got misty when the T-Rex came out. Man... such an awesome beast!
Now we're home and about to order take out. Tomorrow, I'm hoping for the cheese factory tour--an unfufilled dream of mine. But the family is half dead right now.
Sigh... but a girl can dream, right?
