I like to book in a few day trips/ experiences throughout the summer holidays to have something to look forward to and one of our first this year was a trip to Greenwich Peninsula to see Dinosaurs in the Wild, a trip back in time to a dinosaur studying scientific research station. For the dinosaur fans in our house the excitement level was pretty high and every dinosaur toy and book was out in preparation. I have to say, even for someone not that interested in dinosaurs (like myself), the trip was fantastic. The tour guides and ‘scientists’ were absolutely amazing and so enthusiastic. We watched eggs hatching, a dinosaur autopsy, and had quite a thrilling end to the journey ( I don’t want to give anything away!). My youngest two were a little scared but immediately after said that they loved it!
