Recently Handsome Hudson’s cousin Hailey (who is home from college for Christmas break) took him for an outing at the Dino Pit at the Austin Nature Science Center which is located in Northwest Zilker Park. This is a free activity that kids will be begging you for a repeat visit.

Hudson delighted in uncovering the casts of dinosaur fossils..another exceptional memory making activity for kids in Austin!

Good morning Dorie.  If I survive I'll be looking for his name in the papers (if they are still around) or on the internet and TV with his great discovery

What a fun place for kids to explore the wonders of the Jurassic world!  I can remember when I first discovered Dinosaurs in the 4th grade.  They consumed my interest for years.
