My daughters and I went to the mall today to pick up some library books.
That is all we went for.
When we came out of the library, there was an animal show going on in the mall. A gentleman was telling a big group of children (and their parents) about spiders, specifically tarantulas, when we joined. He also talked about snakes, lizards, frogs and turtles. He showed us a baby snapping turtle and a big red-eared slider and talked a little bit about them.
Here is the baby snapping turtle.
Both of my girly-girls held a snake too! They also each got a balloon from a store. You are never too old for balloons. It was a good afternoon. We should have been an hour or less at the mall and we were gone for about two hours!
