Dino Tweetup

</ br>
Last night, the girls and I chose to beat the heat and avoid the soccer pitch. Ottawa hit the hottest day on record: at its peak, the day hit 36°C—factor in the humidity and it felt more like 46°C!
</ br>
I said hot, not H.O.T.!
</ br>
Luckily, we already had these plans to go to our air-conditioned Canadian Museum of Nature, where we attended a 3-D dino tweetup. The evening included a 3-D film about the final days of the dinosaurs, narrated by Donald Sutherland.
</ br>
</ br>
At one point in the 20-minute film, Sutherland said that the Earth was hotter than we've ever known. Clearly, he wasn't talking about yesterday's temperatures!
</ br>
The girls really enjoyed the film, and afterwards we explored a wildlife photo gallery before Lori and the girls went to one of their favourite areas of the museum: the bird gallery.
</ br>
Meanwhile, I met up with some Ottawa tweeps and met some of my Twitter peeps for the first time. Great people!
</ br>
</ br>
So day two of our heatwave went fairly well. How did you beat the heat?
