Park Day with M's Daycare

Aug 3, 2013

M's daycare has been so much fun so far! He absolutely loves going there now and never wants to come home at the end of the day! It makes going to work that much easier in the mornings! Last week I volunteered to help take all the kids to the park on my day off. We had a super fun day!

We started the day with a play at the park, M loved playing with the other kids in the sandbox. It had rained the night before so everything was a bit damp, and lots of kids came out with wet bums from the slides and swings!

Then we went into the museum to see Big Bert. Big Bert is a 92 million year old crocodile that once lived in the area and whose fossilized bones were discovered 20 years ago along the banks of the Carrot River. Big Bert is the world's most complete skeleton of this type of crocodile. Parts of the skeleton were first uncovered in 1991 along the banks of the Carrot River, in the Pasquia Hills of east-central Saskatchewan, by palaeontologist Tim Tokaryk of the RSM. A year later, the rest of the skeleton was collected by the RSM and the Canadian Museum of Nature. At the time, it was the only specimen of its genus to be discovered in Canada. This marine predator was 6.2 m (20 feet) long; its skull alone was more than 1 m long.

We even got to watch a cute little video about it!
