Jeepers Creepers!!

You can see why, heebie-jeebies! was in running for the title as well. It has been a busy and long few weeks since we got back from my sisters. I have been dealing with a abscessed tooth, and i totally forgot about our trip to the museum of natural history in DC(i think there will be more pictures to come).
My boy is afraid of nothing....he loves bugs. Unfortunately a little more than i can deal with. But he is all boy so i don't know what i expected. When we were in the Orkin bug display there at the museum there was a nice lady with a cart full of bugs that she was happily handing out for little bug loving boys to hold. He started with that very huge Madagascar hissing cockroach...eeew! And then this very large green caterpillar.
The only bug Avery would agree to hold was the same caterpillar....i think because it did not move much. She took one look at that cockroach and said,"NO WAY!!!". That 's my girl! I love the look on Mitchell's face when the bug lady was telling him all about that caterpillar. He looks so intent and serious.
Lastly he got his little hands on this hug grasshopper. He loved every minute of it. I think these bugs were the highlight of the museum for him!

that is SO gross! Way to go Mitch... better you than me! I love your new bloggy layout! I can't wait to see that quilt all finished (no pressure tho :) and although I will miss the turtles, I do like the fish. Hope your tooth feels better... I got my teeth cleaned today and, although I got to hear all about how the hygenist's father just fired her 2 brothers and a whole bunch of other interesting tidbits, it did not distract me enough from how much I hate other people messing with my teeth!
