Today marks the third year of Dozin with the Dinos. My daughter wanted to do this as a birthday celebration just the two of us three years ago. She had a blast. When all the other kids in the museum were heading to sleep, she was wanting to stay up until the last possible moment. Dozin’ rules state that everyone is in bed by 1 a.m. And that is what she did after we saw mummies at midnight, bugs in the dark, dinosaurs by exit lights, and everything else the Field Museum has to offer.
Last year her brother and father joined us. She showed them the ropes (or exhibits, since we were at the museum). We saw everything we could while it was lit and then the museum turned out the lights at 10. Mummies at midnight with remarks about how creepy it was. Bugs in the dark with shrieks and holding hands a little tighter. Dinosaurs by exit lights with excitement and whispered yells because others were starting to sleep. He enjoyed his first time Dozin’ with the Dinos as much as his sister did last year.
This year she wanted two friends to go with her. We shall see how excited they are to share the experience. We all love it, and those two girls have talked about it for weeks. Mummies at midnight, bugs in the dark, dinosaurs by exit lights, and everything else here we come!!
