We spent last week in Steamboat Springs with some of our friends, Khale and Sarah, and their daughter Lily.
Of course we had to go snowshoeing while we were there! The weather was beautiful, and it was so fun to see our friends after almost a year of being apart.

On our way home from Steamboat we stopped at Dinosaur National Park in Vernal, Utah. Eric and I were soooo excited, being former archaeology buffs and all. That's a joke; I can't tell you how many people out there think that archaeologists study dinosaurs.
When we got to the park, however, it was closed and quiet. We went on a short walk following a quarry (supposedly full of fossils, but we didn't see any). It was pretty, though. It reminded me of Escalante, in southern Utah, where Eric and I did our field study (and where we met).
So we decided to stop at the Museum of Natural History in Vernal, and were not disappointed. There were dinosaurs everywhere!

Aspen loved them too. Maybe we've got a future archaeologist on our hands, he he.

Love the dinosaur museum in Vernal!! When Luke was a little boy, for his birthday, he'd request a trip to Vernal every year to see the dinosaurs!

I remember Aspen picking up a lot of rocks when she was little...now she likes dinosaurs. If she ends up being a geologist, I can help her out a bit.
