Dinosaurs!

This past Saturday, my roommates and I packed some lunch and towels and drove to Dinosaur Valley State Park in Glen Rose, TX to climb around in some dinosaur tracks for the day. It was a cool, sunny day, and the weather was perfect. We took Jasper, Ashlie and Corbin’s tiny Maltese, and we picked up some picnic food along the way. Corbin kept asking how if we were close, and we just kept telling him to keep his eye out for dinosaurs.

Ashlie’s friend K brought her two big dogs, and they played in the water along with Jasper (although they are significantly taller than Jasper, so they didn’t need help over the bigger rocks and “deeper” water like he did). K is a history teacher, and a really good one, so she taught Corbin about what he was seeing. The funny part is, there’s a “Creation Evidence Museum” down the road, which K has been kicked out of and asked not to return, because she asked too many pointed questions. So we got some actual history lessons from her as we went along our way.

You can see one of the footprints on the lower left here. Pretty cool. It was a lovely day, and it was so nice to get out of the city and be outside in God’s creation. Seeing and being in very old places helps remind me that my concerns, problems, and even joys are very small in the scheme of Great Things.

“What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new under the sun.”

Ecclesiastes 1:9
