The one with the dinosaur

On Tuesday, we went on our first family outing (aside from the mall and that sort of thing) to the Museum of Natural History in Halifax! We need to start instilling her love of museums and other dorkiness early on ;)

All dressed, buckled in, and ready to go!

They had a display going on of Sue, the world's largest most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex. When we were waiting in the lobby to go in, there was a pre-recorded dino roar that went off. Charlotte startled and her eyes got wide. It was pretty funny!

I really like the next photo: Boyd was walking around with her, showing her the displays and whatnot. She all of the sudden caught sight of the dinosaur and just stared:

We walked around and checked out the marine exhibits:

"Oooh, jaws!"

Future marine biologist?

Teaching her all about pinchers and crushers.

Then we checked out the birds and mammals exhibits:

Sable Island horse skeleton. Sweet.

Learning all about cormorants.

This one's for Grampie Joe - checking out the black bear!

After looking at all the animal displays, we walked around a little bit more and found the Acadian exhibit! Woot woot!

Represent, yo.

And with that, our first trip to the museum was over. Charlotte did really well and actually looked at things which was nice. Next stop: The Smithsonian! (again...)


  1. Love it!! Don't forget the Planetarium!

  2. Love the pictures, especially of Boyd and Charlotte where she is staring. Looks like a good time.

  3. Great pictures!! Looks like it was a successful first trip to a museum!!
