We set off early, telling the boys we were going to meet some dinosaurs. Matthew looked dubious, but went with it.
The thing about the Tyrell Museum, is that it's located in a town called Drumheller, two hours north east of Calgary. And I'm not kidding when I tell you that around every corner is a life-sized dinosaur statue.
So, as we pulled into town and rounded the corner to meet this guy, the boys were somewhat awe-struck.
And just to put the size of this beast into perspective...
The Tyrell Museum is magnificent. And if you have the time to wander around the exhibitions and take in all the interesting facts and sights, I'm sure you could learn a lot.
Us? We were with our two under three. And so it was more of a dash-from-one-gallery-to-another while trying to prevent small hands from grabbing bones and fossils.
In the end, the places we spent the most amount of time?
The gift shop... Ahem.
The giant play structure outside...
And basically just chasing dinosaurs all over town.
Because when you're visiting with kids, that's what you do.
