Canadian Vacation Part 2



We visited the Dinosaur Museum in Warner on a rainy day. Normally when it isn't wet tehy take you down into the Coulees and you can actually dig animal bones like they dig dinosaur bones. But we settled for the indoor plaster hidden cow bones. We Made foot prints of a Alberasauras in sand and then filled them with plaster. So each kid has their own dinosaur foot print. They really loved it. We were lucky enough to tag along with a Kindergarten group and got a few more stories and Liza was entertained a little longer having the other kids around.


Here is Liza posing with Dinosaur poop and Daniel touching some Dinosaur bones. It was so hands on. It was great. They have been so into dinosaurs since then. We bought hand dino puppets and they have puppet shows with their ballerina, their police man, their horse and the dinos. Fun learning!!

Eliza looks unsure if it is okay to touch Dino poop or not and Daniel just want in to the display to get the bones. Eliza sure looks like a little archeologist with that dental pick. I know they had fun because I got attacked by D's dino puppet most of the next day.

I am so glad you got to go to Canada. It is so nice to go home for a little while. It looks like they have some really cool things to see there.

I would have loved to dig up some bones! I really want to do fun educational things like that when Ambrose gets a little older. It is nice to see your kids enjoy it so much.
