Walking with Dinosaurs

A coworker needed to travel on short notice and gave Iris and myself a pair of tickets to Walking with Dinosaurs at Staples Center last night. He warned us that these were cheap seats in the nosebleed section. We thought our seats were wonderful. Thanks for the tickets!
In case you have never heard of it, this is a touring stage show based upon the BBC series of the same name. The premise of the series and show is that the viewer has been transported back into time and a actor playing a paleontologist narrates the events as if observing the creatures in the wild. It is a bit hokey, but the dinosaurs were so fantastic that we didn't care.

Many of the small children were restless. Iris tried to hush kids on either side of us with no success. Best of all, I managed to drive there and back exactly on the route I plotted using the map. (Mark and I have driven around downtown in circles more than once, trying to find a suitable freeway on-ramp.)
