Lake View Nature Center
Today I took the kids to Lake View Nature Center. It's actually not that far from us and we usually ride our bikes there. Every Wednesday in the summer they have a program called "Wild Wednesday" where they have about 15 minutes of stories/ puppet plays about animals and then they have someone come in with a live animal the kids can see and sometimes pet. Today was a great one! This girl brought in a Wallaby (that Jake is petting) and a Kinkajou (that I'm holding). Most of you know that I'm not an animal person (although they are interesting to learn about) and I certainly don't go around touching animals but today for some reason I really wanted to hold this little guy. He was really soft and I really enjoyed holding him. We can't wait for next week when they are scheduled to have a tarantula!
