Critters and Smiles Galore

The boys and I have a membership to the Durham Museum of Life and Science, and even though we live over an hour away, we try to make one trip a month. This trip, and last time too, we took our friend Madi with us. Of all the places we visit, we really enjoy the museum and all the activities there are to do there. We spent 6 hours there today, and the time just flew by. There are buildings with lots of cools things to do, but we find ourselves outside for the majority of our visit each time winter and summer. The kids love the playground, music, and farmyard animals. I love the wetlands area and all the birds, insects, amphibians, and reptiles just waiting to have their pictures taken. We enjoy the bears, wolves, and lemurs too not to mention our train ride...especially the tunnel part. Oh, and let's not forget the joy of holding a newly released butterfly. Every time, that is a thrill.
If you haven't been in a while, or maybe never, delight your kids and yourself and make a trip to the museum.
The best pics from today are here.

Another Opportunity

The owner of Coffee & Crepes, Terri, gave me an opportunity to put up a new set of pictures on the orange wall for the month of June. I put a few of the pictures in this post, and the rest are here. They are in order except that I need one more 8X10 to go on the left side, and I won't hang the spider picture. I'll be swapping out pictures on Tuesday 5/26.
Come out on Friday 5/29 after 6 to see the pics, chat, and listen to music on the patio. Looks like the same group, Rhythmicity, will be playing.
