Gator-rama

On our recent trip to Florida my in-laws took the girls and I to Gator-rama.
We had a great time and learned alot.
They have always been so good about educating our children about animals and nature.
I really appreciate that about them. When our older kids were little my mother-in-law use to take the little bug or wildflower guide outside and teach them what was what. They were always all ears and loved spending this time with Grandma. She chose teaching for her career and it was a great fit because she has always been a teacher at heart.
Now....look at the face of the man about to hand me the alligator.....that is the look of a man who is about to scare someone. And that he did....just as he placed the alligator into my hands he jumped and made a big 'rah' sound and of course I jumped out of my skin.
I told him later that it was too bad my husband and teenage sons missed that moment because they love to scare me. He said that he tries to scare one person like that every day and today was my day.
Lucky me.

Thank God for tape....they are not slimy....they are very solid feeling and kind of dry....
and smooth and rough at the same time.

Lilly was feeling uncertain.....

Feeling proud of herself.

She was also feeling grateful for the tape on his mouth right about now.

Even big sister Heidi decided to join in the fun.
Stay tuned for more photos and stories of our adventures in the sunshine state!
