This weekend was my friend Stacey’s baby shower. There are always cute little kids running around that are Satori’s age, so it’s fun watching them. Stacey is a Boulder children’s photographer and I’ve been watching her grow to an amazingly talented photographer since she started just over a year ago. We met each other from the babywearing industry, and our interests have always seemed to run very similar.

Thank you Stacey for talking these photos, I love them!

I always kick myself for not bringing my speedlight flashes to an indoor party, so I had to rely on on-camera flash or very high ISO of 4000. 🙂

We are lucky to live just minutes away from this spectacular dinosaur site – Dinosaur Ridge in Morrison, Colorado. If you live around Denver/Boulder, then take your family to one of their Dinosaur Discovery Days, the second Saturday of each month from 10am to 2:30pm. It’s free, and there will be lots of guides there to give demos and answer questions!

Our visit was cut short due to both an afternoon storm and our hurry to get to a friend’s party in Boulder. So we’ll have to visit again soon, but the hour that we were there, I was very impressed. This area was the time of the Jurassic dinosaurs – from 206-144 mya. We learned that four of the world’s most famous dinosaurs were discovered in this very place – Stegosaurus, Allosaurus, Apatosaurus, and Diplodocus! Although Apatosaurus was first incorrectly identified and named Brontosaurus, so you may see that dinosaur referenced to Colorado as well.

Friendly, knowledgeable guides are posted all over the ridge to answer your questions.

As we chatted with them, some of them thought I was a geologist! Quite flattered, I said I loved studying geology in college, but I forgot it all until this summer, when I homeschooled my daughter in prehistory. They urged Satori and I to be volunteers even, saying that visitors love it when young people are the guides, it makes it more relevant to them I guess. 🙂 Anyway, I was able to look at a picture, and name off the exact period in the past 600 million years where the picture might have represented. Just by reading Satori Smiles blog, you might be able to spot the Dimetrodon (sail-backed reptiles) in this photo and realize this was the Permian period.

They were even more impressed with Satori, who asked some great questions! We ran into a budding paleontologist, a young girl, probably high school age. We hope to visit her at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science some Wednesday morning when she works. Why would she be there on a school day? Because she is homeschooled too! Satori and the girl had great fun talking about their fossils. She wants to be a curator at a big museum someday.

Just as we were about to see the fascinating footprints of the dinos on the side of the hill, it started to rain. We quickly flagged down the bus and had to end our day at Dinosaur Ridge. We’ll be back very soon! July 11 might be a good day, we’ll get to bring our own fossils and talk about them. We’ll also plan better and visit the Morrison Natural History Museum.

Next weekend we get to take another dinosaur field trip to a place of mom’s choice, providing it is driving distance! Should it be Utah or Wyoming?
