Since it was only 35 degrees outside on Saturday, we decided to take the boys to one of our favorite local spots - the Schiele Museum to see their new exhibit: Ants In My Plants.
They got to learn all about ants and see them at work in a large terrarium,which fascinated Cava.
They also got to do crafts, like make a bookmark. . .
Or ants out of plastic spoons and pipe-cleaners . . .
Here's Benjamin with his finished product . . .
We also got to eat a cup of dirt (chocolate pudding with crumbled graham crackers and chocolate chips).
Afterwards, we walked around the museum and looked at all the displays. Cava and I played a game of who could find an animal that was listed on the information plates first.
He would also tell me all about the different animals that he'd learned about on one of his new favorite shows, The Wild Kratt Brothers on PBS Kids. I loved listening to him talk about the different animals and about their habitats.
It was the longest Cava has ever spent looking at the displays, as he typically darts from one to the next with record speed.
He also enjoyed posing in front of the polar bear.
While we were there, we ran into families that we knew from church and from Cava's school, including his principal, who was very glad to see Cava.
We all had a good time and stayed warm.
