The Jones' and the Pleskos visit the Butterfly Pavilion

Here are some pictures from our fun weekend adventure to the Butterfly Pavilion with my husband, sister, niece, and nephew.

Trevor being VERY brave and holding Rosie the Tarantula. On the way to the Pavilion, he would always answer a resounding "NO" when asked if he would hold it. He was the first to run up and sit down and ask to hold it.

Kylie also being quite brave, although there wasn't much doubt that she'd hold Rosie. Those about to enter middle school are ALWAYS brave! Duh!

I'm also quite cool myself.

"Marni, can we get one? PLEEEEEEASE?"

Colleen was way too wussy to hold Rosie, but Trevor sympathetically gave her his "I held Rosie" sticker for the picture. Kylie, not so sympathetic, is trying to point out that her mommy is a fraud.

Probably my three favorite people in the world... with some really icky insects all around them.

I love my D70 SLR but our little Canon PowerShot takes some pretty darn good pictures too.

La familia

Kylie digging out and eating a worm. I told you middle schoolers were brave!

Trevor doing the same. Here in Colorado, we grow a neon variety of worms for the children to eat. Mmm, delicious!

Wow - these pix bring back memories of a certain field trip - and a teacher who wasn't nearly as brave about holding Rosie! Glad her teammate is better at it than her! :)
