Oh, the things we won’t do for our children.

Yep, that’s me holding a snake, y’all.

A real, live, moving snake.  A pied boa, to be exact.

And here is the picture Jonathan took when the snake started making it’s way up my arm.

Not good.

Last Saturday, I took my boys to the Reptile Expo in Lexington.  We met my sweet sister-in-law and her two boys there.

Oh the joys of being a boy-mom.  Smile

I could of thought of a thousand others ways to spend my Saturday, buy my boys love this stuff, so what’s a mom supposed to do?

I take one for the team.

We mostly went because of this boy right here.

(I think that is a giant leopard gecko he’s holding?}

Luke is a reptile-lovin’-fool.  He could talk about these creatures 24/7 {and usually does.}

He was in reptile heaven as we looked at turtles, geckos, skinks, newts, snakes, spiders, beetles and more. 

Eli wasn’t to keen on holding a snake, but finally decided to give it a try.

After exploring the expo for a while, we washed our hands REAL good, and headed to the food court for lunch.

The boys love spending time with their cousins, Drew and Ryan.

Okay, so here’s a cool picture I wanted to show to you. 

That snake I held….

Well, he’s a HUGE fan of Beneath My Heart!

Seriously, look!

He’s got a HEART tattoo!

{I didn’t actually see the heart on the snake that day, but I did when I was editing my photos.  But how cool is that?}  Smile

 

So, what have you done lately

{that you never thought you would do}

for your kids?

I’d love to know! Winking smile
