 {WARNING: picture heavy post}

It is spring break for the kids this week and we have been very busy with day trips to lots of fun places. Our favorite so far seems to be the butterfly garden in Chattanooga. I practiced my photography skills and was quite pleased with my results. The garden was just fantastic! The kids were sooooooo thrilled to be landed on or to hold a butterfly gently on their fingers:
 Okay...this one. Not sure if you can tell by the photo and baby bear's grin but he was LESS than enthused about a critter landing on his head. Daddy had to talk him through his fear...
I just LOVE to look at all the cocoons they have on display at the garden. If you watch long enough you can always catch a "live birth." So amazingly cool.
We also hit the aquarium. The kids love the peek-a-boo chamber. Well, maybe that is not quite right, some of the kids love it. Personally, I am so not interested in being surrounded by giant SPIDER crabs. YUCK!
This is more my style. The shark and ray touch pool. As I was going through all the photos from the pool I just had to giggle when I noticed that my kids were ALWAYS holding out 2 fingers with which to touch the animals. The docent gave instructions to "only touch the animals with two fingers." My kids are well-known for following the rules;). ESPECIALLY this guy:

We also made a stop at the Children's Museum. The kids created their own pose for this photo and I didn't even panic about baby bear standing on the wall! Maybe there is hope for me yet!
 My climber.
Baby bear was pretty good at this!
Ah, the T-Rex. We have about a thousand shots of our kids "getting eaten" by this very dinosaur. Apparently baby bear knows the drill because we found out he is not really that scared:
Daddy climbed up high for this shot. Such a trooper!
The kids had lots of fun playing in the waterworks! I need one of these in the backyard!!!
And finally, the famous Choo-Choo.

Off on another adventure today, have a wonderful weekend!
