They got to learn about turtles, snakes, and lizards. It really was neat. And, Max was able to identify a few of the snakes. Like the Diamond Back.
This guy was so lively and so fun for the kids of all ages to watch. Kept the class alive and knows his stuff for sure.
While waiting to go into the butterfly room, they stopped off to visit the tarantulas of course. No kids, not a pet.
Not sure about Summer's look here.
Nik and Alyona on the escalator. Hey, they did better than their 11yo brothers. URGHH!!! Alex and Logan went around the corner and got reprimanded by the museum staff. I was livid w /the boys. Livid. Grounded. You could see the museum staff a bit relieved that I actually punished them. I guess some kids just run wild. Alex and Logan were then to be "handcuffed" to me or someone else the rest of the trip. They lost freedom. That was the only incident we had but I have to say, I really was disappointed in them. They both know better. Playing on the escalators. Geez.
My son wanted me to take a picture of him kneeling to Genghis Khan. NO IDEA why in the world but I obliged. He was trying to be funny. I asked if he knew all of what this man did. He said yes mom, I know. I'm not doing it b/c I like what he did. Surprisingly, Bojan has a thirst for history and is very intrigued by it.
I just liked these. I want them in my new house. Maybe in the bathroom somewhere. Just thought they were beautiful. I guess b/c they're kid proof behind that glass, huh?
Summer, enjoying the fish. Goofy smile caught again.
Alex, admiring the size of that whale skeleton. Really does put it in perspective.
Kids goofing around in the bat tree. You look up and see the bats. Of course Yana and Bojan were goofing off.
Nice Reni. I think she's taking after some of her sibs, don't you?
