On Tuesday, we got up and ready pretty early, especially with that 7 kids, and made our way to the Nature Center in Boise. Jen knew it would be the perfect place for me because:
1) There were a lot of pretty flowers there. My favorite. The Plant Lady lives!
2) There was a pressed penny machine there! Someday I'll explain the extent of my pressed penny fascination, but for now, let's just say that I collect them. A lot of them. Anyway, if you want to read about another pressed penny incident, go here.
Don't you love that picture of the girlies? I think they look so cute. Oh, and the new header on my blog is a picture from the nature center too.
Alyssa and Rylee just crack me up. They see a pelt of a mountain lion and the first they they do is:
a) run away screaming
b) get a little grossed out because it's the skin of an animal. (Oh wait, that's me.)
or c) stick their fingers in the mouth.
You guessed right, c. The crazy little girls.As we were standing there a girl came out with this...let's see...gopher snake? I can't remember and I can't see it too well. Anway, a snake. Tayler, Rylee and Alyssa ran right up to touch it. Rylee looks at me and says, "Touch it" with a funny glint in her eye. I touched it then she looked at her mom and Jenny and said, "Touch it." Ahh, that's what she was expecting as they said, "No thanks Rylee." She smiled. I'm not scared of no stinking snakes...a spider, now that's a different story that I've had to get over living in the trees.
And then we got to eat the fruit of our labors. It made it all worth it! Yummy! If only there was a Chili's by us. It would be amazing!
Ok, enough family fun, let's get onto our vacation. Tune in tomorrow. Same bat-time, same bat-channel.
