World's Biggest Dinosaur!

In my attempt to return to "normal" life, I think I may have taken a detour. After picking up Sierra from school, I got on the freeway and started driving. We ended up in Cabazon at the "World's Biggest Dinosaur". This has been featured in numerous movies, including my personal favorite,

It was quite entertaining and a sneaky bit educating, too. It's an entire exhibit devoted to the belief that dinosaurs are really a recently extinct phenomenon. Evolution, carbon dating, and science in general are discredited. By the end of the tour, I was wondering myself....

This is a great place to take kids. They have robotic dinosaurs, a dinosaur dig pit, panning for fossils, and you can even climb inside the big dinos. Of course there are lots of dino souvenirs to take home and you can relive your favorite scenes from Pee Wee's Big Adventure. It's not as dusty and there's a lot more traffic and tourists, but the wind is still there! It was a fun afternoon and my little kids can't wait to go back.


  1. All right - I have to take the kids there next time we come down to visit. They are all about the dinosaurs. Danner has even gone so far as to convince my FIL to decorate his house in dinos! It wasn't too hard, everyone loves a T-Rex.

  2. Oh my! What happened to your kids? They are all so big. See you in a few days. YEAH!!!!
