Family Travel // Buena Park

November 20, 2015

We had a little time left in Buena Park California before heading to our next destination, so we decided to check out the Ralph B. Clark Regional Park
My little four year old Thomas is very into dinosaurs at the moment, and wants to be a Paleontologist when he grows up.  We hoped to check out the Los Coyotes Paleontology Museum, but when we arrived the doors were locked.  They do only open at certain hours, so it is suggested that you call ahead.  We had one sad little dino lover, but definitely plan to go back.  He still asks us when we are going to go back!  They have many fossils on display, including a 9 million year old whale skeleton, possibly the only complete ice age whale fossil in existence.
Instead, we walked around the park, and looked at the ducks in the pond and played on the playgrounds.  We will have to come back and check out more!
