Remember when we found those dinosaur bones in the back yard? It was the day after dad buried Candy and bought the new fish. When we found out where Candy was going, we decided to find out what else was buried in the yard.

We dug and dug, deep and wide until you found the T-Rex bone! With a bone that big, we knew there had to be more, maybe even a whole T-Rex right there in our yard and maybe the next one too.

By the end of the day we were covered head to foot in muck. We had been working hard; the whole garden and part of the neighbor’s yard was a big dirt-pile.

Then Dad told us the T-Rex bone was just a big tree root. I’m not sure Mum ever forgave us for digging up the roses.
