Digging the Drumheller Dinosaurs

Who are these fools who dream of driving across Canada? Just getting from Calgary to Saskatoon is enough to make me mental. It’s been an eye-opening experience for Brayden, too, who’s getting his first views of both the Rockies and the actual prairies. He was impressed by the former; not so much by the latter. (Turns out he, like his mother, cannot read in a moving vehicle without getting sick, so that’s a bummer. Thank God for the iPad.)

We didn’t spend the entire day driving, though. This morning we got to see the the oh-so-awesome dinosaur fossils at the Royal Tyrell Museum in Drumheller. We easily could’ve spent more time there if the kids had bothered to read any of the signs at the exhibits, but they just wandered around looking at skeletons. I hadn’t been to Drumheller in over 30 years, so it was basically all new to me too. Very cool.

And now for the family visit portion of the adventure…
