The last weekend of August was our busiest weekend since we started 4 months ago. Our Walking Dinosaur Rocket had 3 solo performances and 2 performances with Razor. We celebrated with 5 boys – Anakin (11), Truth (4), Jonathan (4), Jacob (5), & Dawson (4). Here is our Jurassic Extreme weekend adventure:
Rocket + Razor’s appearance was a total surprise for all of the birthday boys and their guest.
Before each walking dinosaur made their appearance the kids helped the birthday boys shout out Rocket or Razor’s name “Rocket, Rocket… Rocket!”. The energy of all the kids and parents made Rocket and Razor’s nerves much calmer. It’s always fun watching their instant reaction when they first see the dinosaurs and amazing how much kids love dinosaurs.
We had a fun time dancing to Anakin’s favorite song “Hooked On A Feeling” by Blue Swede. We especially liked Anakin’s love for music and dance rhythm. He is quite the dance machine. Anakin also had a surprise visit from an imperial officer out of the Star Wars Movie. The party just got cooler! Jurassic Extreme captured the moment with Rocket + Anakin + Mom and the Imperial Officer.
Upon arrival to Truth’s party we noticed a huge Hamster Ball and other games in the yard. We also noticed all the cool Jurassic World props. It was our first time seeing a Dinosaur Bust cake made out of Rice Krispies. It looked great and delicious! Truth’s mom did an awesome job with all the Jurassic World party decorations – cake, cupcakes, balloons, plates, etc.. Truth, his mom and guests were wearing Jurassic World T-Shirts. Now there is a Jurassic World theme type of party! Razor and Rocket had a grand time chasing Truth in the Hamster Ball.
Jonathan’s aunt Erika surprised him with a special appearance from Rocket! The party was not only a surprise to the birthday boy but everyone who attended the party. His guests took pictures before dancing with the dinosaur. Once Jonathan realized that Rocket was not the type of dinosaurs he sees on TV he finally approached him and took a picture with him. Just before Rocket left Jonathan gave him a big hug.
The morning of Sunday, August 30th, Jacob and Javier received a breakfast surprise from Rocket. Rocket was thrilled because he noticed the huge open field where he could roam around freely. He even chased a power wheel jeep in the field. It definitely looked like the scene in Jurassic Park. Jacob was in full control and introduced Rocket to jumping. He had him jump around 10-15 times. It was pretty challenging for Rocket as you can only imagine the weight needed to make that lift. Rocket enjoyed being around Jacob’s warm and patient personality. He definitely learned a lot from Jacob – back kick and jumping. We think Rocket made a new best friend!
Rocket made his way to his final dinosaur birthday party destination in Pearland. He met cute little Dawson. Dawson was full of curiosity when Rocket came walking into his backyard. Curiosity is always high when Rocket first encounters 4 year olds. Dawson gave Rocket the biggest hug he could. It was a sweet moment watching little Dawson hug the big guy Rocket.
Rocket and Razor had an incredible great time dancing the Cha Cha slide with the birthday boy’s, kicking around a soccer ball, and racing the kids. He is definitely no pro but he is quickly becoming familiar with the concept.
Our team’s experience was thrilling! We walked away with huge smiles on our face because we knew we made their day. The birthday boy’s smile throughout Rocket and Razor’s performance was priceless!
