Dinosaur Birthday Party: The Invitation

Can you identify the 8 dinosaur species partying at our house? 
Spot the: Ankylosaurus, Stegosaurus, Spinosaurus, Brachiosaurus, two Microraptors, Cryolophosaurus, Utahraptor, and Apatosaurus.

Ezra loved the invitation I made for his third birthday party so much that I was afraid he would be disappointed by the actual party. "When will the dinosaurs get here for my birthday?," he asked in the weeks before the party. Even after repeatedly explaining that dinosaurs (at least non-avian dinosaurs) lived a long, long time ago, he would not give up hope. The day before the party he excused his guests' tardiness by reminding himself that dinosaurs can't drive so it would take them awhile to walk to our house. Yes, it is a long walk from the Mesozoic era.

Once Ezra's family and friends started to arrive for the party he forgot about the no-show dinos. Which is good. How fun is a party when the guests want to eat you?
