Living, Laughing & Experiencing Life in Canada's Capital Region

Tag Archives: Walking with Dinosaurs The Arena Spectacular

Yesterday, my family, our friends and I made our way to the Canadian Tire Centre to meet a dinosaur. I had no what to expect or what my three little event critics would think.


There were many familiar faces in the crowd yesterday. It feels like homecoming weekend when I see the members of the Ottawa blogger community, hugs all around and chatting about what each one of us are up to this summer.


I have a very loud nervous laugh. When I saw Baby T Rex, I wasn’t sure what Beckett & Andie would think, it was truly very life like and I may have been a little scared myself.

Beckett snuggled up to me as close as he could and, of course, Andie-Pandie decided to pet that T Rex, while it snapped, growled and generally made the entire crowd feel like we had a real dinosaur in our midst.

This shot was taken one second after Baby T Rex grabbed my phone with his giant teeth! Yes, we were that close and that baby dino had a little attitude.

Then I kissed that Baby T Rex, I mean really a girl only lives once right?

This show promised to be exciting and eventful, if the media show was any indication, even my tween Katie is looking forward to the show.
