Jurassic Forest

Last week I tagged along during a Gibb get together as we all went to Jurassic Forest. Calee and all her kids, Diane and her twins, and Sis Gibb were there too. It is out in Gibbons, so I car pooled with Barb. We only had Jarom in her van on the way out there, mine and Barb's girls squeezed in Diane's van.



It felt like I was walking in the gates to Jurassic Park in the movie when we got there. Taylor was a little scared at first. But that was probably because she wanted to watch the movie Jurassic Park the day before. We don't have it so I was showing her clips of the movie on youtube. Yes I did show her this scene from the movie. We didn't finish it, she told me she was too scared and to turn it off. I love that movie, saw it 5 times in the theatre!

When you get inside, there are 2 pathways you can take. And along each pathway there are dinosaurs that move!



Hannah wasn't scared at all. In fact she was having major 4 year old pms that day. I am so scared of this girl when she is a teenager.


Scarlett wasn't scared either, we just told her to make that face cause it's super cute.


This next picture was taken right when Barb said there was a pterodactyl in the sky. Haha!


And Jarom was being such a good boy. Of course!


There were those yellow and black caterpillars everywhere and the girls each found one. They both kept telling me to take care of them, I was like, I am not touching that thing, am I right Barb?!!


They had a big open sand area with fake fossils and brushes and other cool dinosaur play structures. The girls loved it!




The girls had so much fun that day. I would definitely take them back. It might have to be a once a year thing though, it cost $30 for me and my 2 girls! But I do think it was worth it.

I think it was worth it too. And it's not something that you need to do more than once a year, so it's all good. Those caterpillars were gross.

fun! That seems like the best activity for that age group. and I can't believe Taylor watched that clip!! Actually... I think I may have seen that movie when I was her age. hmmm....

That looks so fun! I am tempted to take the kids before the weather turns gross. Hmmmm.... And I used to love those caterpillars, but can't stand touching them now. Yuck! Oh to be a careless kid again!

would it be worth it for me and my army? Jurassic Park is Will's absolute favorite movie. He names all the dinosaurs, and pulls his toy ones out and plays with them while watching the movie. As soon as I heard about this place I wanted to go but it's a LOOOONG drive from here so I'm hesitant... It looks fun...

I just heard about this place, it looks so fun! I love that the little kids weren't scared at all. We might have to go there next time we're in Edmonton.
