My wife and son ROCK! Yesterday I got an awesome surprise. Right at dinner time I was told that I needed to get ready because I had to leave for something special very soon. My son and I headed out the door with tickets in a sealed envelope and all my wife told me was that I needed to go to the St. Pete Times Forum. She had dropped a few hints making me think I was taking our son to see the Star Wars Orchestra which I wanted to see but worried might be a bit much for a 4 year old.
When I got to the Forum I saw that we really had tickets for Walking with Dinosaurs! It is a show with a paleontologist telling the history of dinosaurs with life-size dinosaurs bringing the story to life. The larger dinosaurs weigh 1.6 TONS! They had a brachiosaurus that was 36 feet tall and 56 feet long! Of course my son’s favorite was the Tyrannosaurus Rex which had a very impressive and LOUD roar. It was a great night spending some time with my son, and my wife is the best for setting up such a terrific surprise.
