Family Holiday

We spent a weekend enjoying a little bit of Alberta.
We took the girls to Drumheller to the dinosaur museum since CJ learned all about them. CD didn't really enjoy it so much, "Mama, 'saur tare(scare) me! Roar." It was a lot to take in! We also stopped to see the World's Largest Dinosaur in downtown and had a look at the Hoodoos.

In Calgary we spent a day at the zoo. It was incredible!! I love the eyelashes on the giraffes! And being from the Canadian Prairies I had no idea how big hippos were... they are HUGE!
We saw a baby gorilla ~ C.U.T.E!!!!

The next morning before heading home we went to Telus World of Science. It was amazing! The girls had so much fun! They had some digital pond that would make ripples when you walked on it, a floor you could walk on and make musical sounds, a virtual plane to fly, a theatre where you could put on a play, change your costumes, control the lighting, change the set ~ it was great. Moto-Moto and I had lots of fun there.
Lots of science experiments. Physics problems and experiments. A toddler room with busy-beavers water play, a climbing structure, a store to play in.
An interactive Robert Munsch diplay.
That place was SO much fun!! We went right in the morning when it opened and had the whole place to ourselves!! It was super! OH, Moto-Moto and I even tried to lay on a bed of nails!! Too cool!
