Reptiles, Lizards, and Snakes, Oh My!

Once again we were lost on our way to The Academy of Sciences. The first time my husband drove around for three hours, holding us hostage, trying to find the Museum. When the kids and I were finally able to convince him to pull over, get directions, and admit he had no idea where it was...the one person he chose to ask didn't speak English.  It was quite an adventure. 

Seems he has the same sort of luck with google maps.

The planetarium was the top priority since the passes were gone the last visit.  But the highlight was the new snake and lizard exhibit. 

"Mom, we should get one of those for our house!" Rio referred to a lizard the size of a large dog.

Amaya was more interested in the large Boa Constrictor.

"What does that eat?" She asked contemplating the probability of it's diet including little brothers.

I had to crush both of their reptile dreams.


  1. What is it with men and directions?

  2. Its not my fault that google maps got the address wrong. Plus we were only like four blocks off. go ahead and make fun....

  3. they eat Mice L O L

  4. Glad you made it out alive...did you pick up a few souvenir, stuffed lizards at the gift shop?

  5. Ugh! give me lions and tigers and bears any day. Snakes give me the heebeejeebees!

  6. I would've done the same. Crush them snakes and lizards. Eek!

  7. LMAO! I remember taking my nephew and his friends to the Shedd Aquarium recently and contemplating feeding them to the anaconda in the Amazon exhibit. :)

    Orlando We work in the city every day !!! You are my google map. But I guess as you get older like the soft ware for google you need to be up dated to. Thanks for the heads up Nikki so we don't get lost together and end up on an adventure to. By the way orlando best buy has their g.p.s systems on sale this month :) P.s. Nikki fathers day is coming up soon.

  9. Snakes are so not my favorite! I think I would have preferred the time being lost...

  10. So funny! We have had numerous lost adventures also.

    My girls would love for a boa to swallow the other one. They are constantly fighting. We'll stay away from the reptiles too and all pets.

    Our pet snail died today. It was traumatic.
