Grandmas may not like this post... involves kids and snakes!

The kids and I took advantage of the FREE Science Saturday up at Weber State University last weekend. Little did we know that we would be making some new friends!

Don't you love how calm and relaxed Becca is holding a baby python??

Then, we met the full size version! Eww!! My kids didn't mind petting this huge 15 foot guy. (Even Allison.)

Yep, Becca looks like a professional snake handler here.

How did you do Grandmas? Did you make it to the end of the post?? Pretty gross, eh?

Oh man, I'm really wishing we would've gone to that. Parker favortie place on earth is Reptile Gardens in SD. That is so cool. Only a mother of boys can say that right?!

Wow! and GROSS!!!! I can't STAND snakes! But I know Logan would have LOVED it! I'm glad you guys were able to go and your kids had SO much fun! What GREAT pictures!

Okay, the yellow snake is fasinating, but the big thing on the floor is disgusting! I'm glad you're a brave Mom.

It was a lot of fun! I am glad someone else went too. When do you go? We went to the snakes, the bacteria in the food and a few other things. Glad you took pictures, I wished I had.

Hi Jill! I'm glad you went, too- it was really fun! I'm glad they're having some more days like that. We didn't make it up there until the last hour, but we did make it to a planetarium show- that was really great, too!
The snake was grossing me out, I couldn't believe my kids snuggling up to it (almost).
