Meet the tiny dinosaurs. Their names are Leo, Lola, and Archibald.
These tiny dinosaurs came to us one by one, courtesy of the nice people over at Photojojo. (Whenever you order anything from Photojojo, they include a tiny dino in your package, for free.) We got Leo first, in a package I ordered three-ish years ago, and started taking him with us on our getaways.
For a while Leo was sort of like our Flat Stanley—we took him everywhere and snapped photos of him in all the places we went. Then, last year, I ordered another package from Photojojo, and that was how we adopted Lola.
Soon after we got Lola, I needed to give a last-minute gift and made an expedited order. And that was how Archibald promptly entered our lives and rounded out our trio of tiny dinosaurs.
Now the dinos go with us on each and every getaway, without fail. When it’s time to travel, we gather them up, put them in a sunglasses case, and show them the world.
They like trying new foods, like bok choy (for Lola and Archibald) and fish (for Leo):
They don’t really care for airplane food, but they’ll eat the fruit:
Although Leo is the carnivore of the group, I’m hesitant to give him the taste of red meat, as it might inspire him to turn a bloodthirsty eye toward his fellow dinosaurs. But I let him have other forms of protein, like nuts and tofu:
And when they’re not trying new food, they’re especially fond of watching sunsets.
Our mini-members of the Getaway Brigade are pleased to make their blog debut, and we’ll be sure to include them in future recaps of our getaways.
