Aaaahhhh. . . . can you smell it? I’m talking about Spring! There’s no snow on the grass. And it’s green! This week the kids and I spotted the first snake in the yard. I can hardly contain my joy. Pretty soon we’ll be visiting farmers markets and going to concerts in the park. . . .
[photopress:animal_grossology_1.jpg,thumb,pp_image] This is the last weekend to catch the Animal Grossology exhibit at the Wildlife Experience. Next month they’re opening up a new exhibit that looks to be over-the-top cool. If you haven’t headed down to the Wildlife Experience to see all the yucky stuff that animals do, this is your last chance. You might also consider a trip to see the Titanic Exhibit at the Flatirons Mall. 50 artifacts from a ship that sunk almost 100 years ago. That’s sure to impress.
