DInosaurs attack the Stanislaus County Fair

The most surprising thing at the fair was the dinosaur exhibit in the children's area. Of course, I thought it was a little cheezy but hey I am geologist who has gone dinosaur bone hunting in the Morrison Formation. The organizers had a big tent filled with full size dinosaur models that included names and locations where the dinosaurs were found. The kids in the tent where going crazy over the dinosaurs, I hope there were some future paleontologists in the group. I am glad that I got the chance to witness children having fun and getting educated at the same time about geology. Of course, I have to admit about my own child. He was crying the whole time in the tent, because he wanted to ride the Dumbo ride outside. All I did was shake my head, let my dad push him and kept walking........
