The Dinosaurs at the zoo are Awesome!  I've taken the kids 4 times to see them, and they've gone with Nana, Grandpa Jack and Auntie Becca once.  Travis hasn't had a chance to go but we'll fix that pretty soon.
The first time I took them Emerson was quite scared, he wanted to be carried or in the wagon. He kept his head in my shoulder or his hands over his eyes but he was always peeking out.  When we would walk past the dinosaur Emerson would wave and say "bye" followed by "Wow! cool, moving dinosaur! Scary! One more please" haha.  He talked about dinosaurs non stop after that first visit and was almost inconsolable that night when I told him we could not go back to the zoo to see them that day.  Now he's dino obsessed!  We got a great book recommendation from a friend. ABC Dinosaurs. Its a board book with every letter of the alphabet covering a dinosaur. Its awesome! It has facts and picture of how big the dinosaur is compared to a person.
Because we've been so many times now Emerson is just a bit nervous around the T-Rex but all the other ones he's fine with.  Alyssa loves the dinosaurs too.  Its really fun to watch her because some of them are motion sensored and others have buttons so you can control which parts of them move. Emerson is content to watch the dinos but i'm sure he'll get into pushing buttons soon too.
