Kaiya checking out some fish
Kaiya looking at the bee hives
There was also an area where kids could make animal tracks...something Kaiya actually did.
In the same area, there was a museum lady who was holding a snake for the kids to touch. We patiently waited our turn and since there was nobody else in the room but us, we figured we would go and try to touch it. She said Kaiya was too little, which was very understandable. So mommy asked if she could touch it. This lady seemed like she did NOT want me to touch it. She insisted on repeating herself 4-5 times that I needed to wash my hands after touching the snake before touching Kaiya again (all within a 30 second window). Yeah lady...I heard you the first time, do I look deaf?!? Sheesh. So of course I was already annoyed, but I wanted to see what the snake felt like. So once she let me touch it, of course, the lady yelled at me for petting the snake the wrong way. Sorry lady, maybe you should've told me how to pet the snake instead of repeating I needed to wash my hands for the millionth time. (Can you tell I was annoyed by this lady...I swear she thought I was an idiot that's why.) So she asked how the snake felt...and I told her that he felt like (snakeskin) boots. Haha...she didn't like that very much. I thanked her, asked her where the bathroom was and handed Kaiya to Grandma Barb and went off to wash my hands.
