It finally got cool enough for Mr. Dragon and yours truly to make a quick trip to the zoo to see the dinosaurs.
"Dinosaurs?", you say?!!!
It was a great idea.
Bring the dinosaurs to the zoo during the summer when folks are looking for something to do with the kids.
Hopefully, there will be a few visitors who haven't been to the zoo before,
will enjoy the dinosaurs and find out that the Houston Zoo is a great place to visit.
It was such a good idea, that the dinosaurs were held over through Halloween.
I loved the setting.
Lots of foliage, trees, flowers
for the dinosaurs to play in.
It was all well thought out.

We had a great time watching the kids.
They were running and loud and then they entered the dinosaur exhibit
and suddenly, when they come on the first dinosaur ... quiet!
BIG critters and they make LOUD noise.
At the every end there was a cemetery.
A cemetery for just a few of the animals that once roamed the earth
on land and in the seas.
We really don't have a very good record being stewards of the earth and its creatures.
It was a lovely, cool (mid 70's instead of low 90's) way to spend the afternoon.
Mosaic Monday is hosted by the lovely Mary.
Each mosaic is different. Each has its own story to tell.
