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.
