Story Time

I almost didn't take the kids to story time today. I was running behind schedule and Megan REALLY needed a morning nap. I laid her down, but a half hour of crying later, decided to ditch that and go ahead and head for the Library. Besides, I needed new videos for Carter to watch as we head to Dallas tomorrow.
I'm so glad we went!!! Today for story time, how it's related I don't know, the Houston Zoo had a lady come down and talk about animals. Carter and Meg were in HEAVEN. Not only that, but she brought some LIVE animals too!!!
She brought out a tortoise, which she said is nicknamed the pancake tortoise because of it's flatter shell, a Chincilla, and some sort of snake that lives in the Sahara. SO COOL. Not only that, but we got to touch them. Okay, okay, so maybe I loved this more than the kids. Maybe. hahaha. I don't think I'll ever get the chance to touch a Chincilla again, so that was my favorite. It was SO SOFT. And way cute. Carter and Meg's favorites were the snake. Why the snake? I have no clue. Meg wouldn't touch any of the exhibits, even feathers, but stared and stared, and moved around people, so she could keep staring at the snake. Carter is a boy. Of course he would chose the snake.
Awesome trip. Totally made our day. We really do have a good library story time here on the island.

HEY! I'm in Dallas today too!! What are the odds? My number is 661-304-0544. I doubt you'll check this while you're there. But IF YOU DO....! We'll be at the Kimball art museum. Maybe Old Fort Worth, and possibly the state fair. Give us a call. We'll all be there.
Love, Aunt Rachel

Sounds like a great Story Time at the library. I would be just as excited as you were :).

That is amazing! You really do have a good library. Have fun in Dallas! Such a good idea to check out movies from the library when you're going out on a trip. Why haven't I thought of that sooner? You're a genius!
