Field Trip!

Part of the "be together" plan for the time being was a field trip.  Yep, the hubby took the day off to go to Cockroach Bay.

I know that sounds kind of yucky but they all had a blast.  The purpose of the trip was to find and learn more about the critters that live there.

Here's a picture of Ilaria holding a Ribbon Snail she found:

and a close up of the snail:

No, this is not the invasive species of African snails that are currently eating people's homes.

They also found all kinds of crabs including a Mangrove Tree Crab, a sea horse, and fish.  Of course, it was all catch and release so no critters were harmed in the process.

Here's a picture of the girls being goofy:

And on a more creative note, I promise to have a little something special for you this week so don't give up on me just yet.

Until next time, may your creative time be blissful.
