With our Arizona summer temperatures reaching record breaking highs last week we have been spending most of our time in our backyard pool with an occasional break for indoor fun. We spent a great family day at the dinosaur museum and took an excessive amount of photos to remember little sister’s first magical experience. She is currently obsessed with dinosaurs so it was a very fun time for her full of many “WOW look at that,” moments. At just two years old, she can identify many dinosaurs and like most children, is in awe of the Tyrannosaurus Rex. The Arizona Museum of Natural History has so much to look at and kept us cool inside for a full day of exploring with the dinosaurs. We captured all the fun with our new LG L59 – Grace and didn’t mind sharing while we were there because of the new Walmart Family Mobile $49.88 PLUS Plan powered by T-Mobile. The unlimited plan includes Talk, Text, & Data which includes up to 15GB of 4G LTE† then 2G*. After our visit we came home and printed so many of our favorite photos so little sister could continue learning about dinosaurs and keep us laughing about all the silly things she pointed out at the museum. My tips for printing photos at home include what to do with them after they’re printed – photo albums, frames and even placemats continue the summer fun!
With Walmart Family Mobile, there is no activation fee and no contract so you can truly walk in at anytime and start your service. You can even bring in an old phone to activate. This is perfect for summertime with kids at home! My daughter loves taking photos during our summer adventures and really enjoyed using the new phone to capture all our fun at the dinosaur museum.
Walmart Family Mobile customers on the $49.88 PLUS Plan will receive a free VUDU◊ movie rental credit valued at $7.00 each time they renew their service. I see a summer Jurassic Park movie night in our future!
The photos captured on the mobile phone from the dinosaur museum were stunning.
Although we have many to choose from, a personal favorite from this visit to the dinosaur museum is my daughter taking a picture of the Tyrannosaurus Rex Skeleton. It perfectly captures her interest in science and photography.
We printed all the photos on our home printer, our HP ENVY 7640 and were so impressed with the color.
Tips for Printing your Summer Photos at Home
Make sure your printer has color ink cartridges and photo paper stocked. Decide on paper sizes and the projects you intend to make with your photos prior to printing so you don’t overprint and use unnecessary ink.
Make a photo album
We printed all the photos in a 4×6″ size and placed them in a floppy photo album so little sister could have a book of the visit.
Print 8×10″ photos to laminate for placemats.
The placemats can be used on your dinner table or for messy play projects. I’m sure little sister will be using them for both.
Print larger photos and frame. Place on a shelf next to your child’s favorite corresponding toy. For little sister it’s her dinosaur collection!
Little sister is reliving all those magical moments at the dinosaur museum over and over in her printed photo album. I want to bottle up that little “wow,” and keep it forever. Better yet, I’ll just record it on my phone and play it whenever I need a reason to smile.
Do you have tips for printing your summer photos at home too?
All the grandparents in our family can thank Walmart Family Mobile for the fun dinosaur museum photos and late night video chats with our daughters this summer! We’re staying connected with family and having an epic summer of fun not worrying about data limits.

Love the photos that you took! I never would have thought that they were taken using a smartphone! I think printing pictures is a lovely idea! I like your suggestions on how to do it as well.
I haven’t printed photos in years. I have thousands of them saved, but need to make books out of them one of these days.
Those pictures came out fabulous! It’s been a while since I printed pictures. I used to make books all the time. I do make photo gifts for the holidays for my mom and I’ve used Walmart in the past to do it. They came out great. I love the idea of making placemats!
My pictures never turn out when I print at home so this is definitely a printer I’d be interested in!! Dinosaur museum looks like so much fun for the kids too!
Wow! Those dinosaur museum photos turned out really crisp! Printing photos is so important, especially if your phone crashes!
I love that there is such a large variety of cell phone plans to choose from. This looks like an amazing museum that I would certainly love to visit one day .
It looks like y’all had a blast! The pictures turned out awesome as well! I always forget to print mine, so I need to get better about it.
you guys seem to have had an amazing time! the pictures came out great. its cool the amount of cell phones plans you get to choose from. those ethos are awesome.
Wow the photos came out really good on the phone and it sounds like you had a really fun time. It’s so good that there’s lots of good phones out there which aren’t too expense x
Those phone pictures are fantastic. I am interested in this phone for my mom. She doesn’t need/want an expensive phone but we want a good camera. This might do it!
My kids would love to go there! My first child is so interested about dinosaurs and she wants to learn more about them. Great photos! Now I know how to print great pics
What a fun trip!! I have so many photo that need to be printed and these tips can definitely help me stop putting it off and get it done sooner rather than later.
Such high quality images, shows what a fantastic phone it is.I haven’t printed photos in a long time because my printer gave up ages ago. You have inspired me to consider getting some of the digital photos I have printed from the phone.
My kids would love this museum and I haven’t printed photos in a while. Especially at home. I need to though so I don’t lose them all on computer.
My kids would flip if I took them here! They have been obsessed with dinosaurs lately and I think they’d really enjoy learning more about them somewhere like this.
How fun! Not only does the museum look amazing but printing my own photos would be awesome too! How fantastic!
It would be so nice to take my kids here for the summer. I think love taking them to places where they’ll have fun and learn too. I think printing photos is always a great idea! These are nice tips!
It’s so important to print photos! This is fantastic! Too often now photos end up stuck on the phone!
Wow! What an amazing museum! I can’t remember the last time I printed a photo, but I desperately need to! I have so many pictures stuck on my phone and camera that I need to get in to frames.
My husband has a Walmart family mobile phone and just loves the thing!!! For that price you really can’t beat it
I enjoyed looking through your photos! I have always wanted to visit a dinosaur museum.
