Field Station: Dinosaurs

Did you know that you can visit Jurassic Park in New Jersey? I sure didn't. But the M.O.M. (with her uncanny ability to find amazing things to do with the goblins on the weekends) definitely did.

This past Saturday, we visited Field Station: Dinosaurs. The Field Station is located in Secaucus, New Jersey and is home to over thirty life-sized animatronic dinosaurs. It is over twenty acres total and built at the base of a 150 million year-old rock formation. But these details are insignificant when you realize that you are walking along paths next to life-sized animatronic dinosaurs. The six-year-old boy inside of me had a heart attack. And the six-year-old boy walking next to me had a heart attack as well.

Editor's Note: We thought it best to leave Princess Teacup with Grandma Nina since we wanted to spend some time alone with our little homie. And because I didn't want her to try and wrestle a Velociraptor.

Please follow the jump for more amazing photos from our "Mommy and Daddy Date with Sippy Cup".


Sippy Cup approached Jurassic Park with a determined gait...

...and was promptly greeted by this lovely monster. I cannot remember its given scientific name but let's just go with "monster" for now.

Thankfully, the Apatosaurus was a much gentler creature.

As was the Stegosaurus.

I ran away from this dude so I have no idea what he's called.

Sippy Cup was enjoying the trip.  But he had only one dinosaur on his "must see" list.

He found it on the map...

...and took off running...

...and found him hiding around a corner.

You would think they wouldn't be this calm in front of a Tyrannosaurus Rex. But, then again, we live with Princess Teacup. Everything else is pretty tame once you've lived with her.
