The kids had a blast and we all learned a LOT about snails!
A "GarDeN variety" snail
[did you KNOW that shell is made of dirt eaten by the snail?]
Peeking in at an African Snail
[look but don't touch!]
Making a snail craft!
Snails on a log
A very cute and easy craft the kids loved!
A series of shots...none of which are good, all of which are funny.
Ya think my fishing pole is long enough or should I find another one?
Feeding the fishes our sandwich crusts
We had a really great day. We love hanging out with Pua and Phoebe. And the kids love each other. Ho'omaluhia Botanical Gardens is located on the Windward side of the island up against the Ko'olau Mountain Range. It's gorgeous over there, so green and lush. I even found Soap Berries, I'm currently trying to figure out how to make them into usable laundry detergent!
When going on family field trips I always dress the kids in like colors. Of course I love having them all match and coordinate but really for sighting purposes I try and make it easy on myself! That's why today is all about the orange!
What tricks do you use when taking all the kids out?
