Wordless Wednesday: A Wild Summer at Discovery Science Center

On Saturday we were invited to a special “media” preview of an exhibit for the summer titled “Wildlife Rescue” at Discovery Science Center.  We were treated to a hands-on “petting zoo” of lizards, snakes, frogs, and other unique creatures.  Angry Kid was especially excited to see all of these creatures.

Before we left, Angry Kid got to do some grocery shopping at the EcoChallenge Discovery Market. That look of confusion is the same look that I get in a grocery store.

Looks like everyone had a great time - and you took excellent photos to remember it.

I would not be so calm with a frog on my arm.
