Big Bugs!

On Labor Day, we headed down to the San Antonio Botanical Gardens to see the new Big Bugs! exhibit.

In addition to the spider, there were ants, a dragonfly, damselfly, assassin bug, grasshopper and praying mantis.

The boys got to release some ladybugs and make bug music.

Mitchell held a giant grub - and freaked out when it moved! The poor grub went flying through the air and landed on the sidewalk!  The handler quickly scooped it up and put it away, telling us to keep quiet. Turns out, the grubs belong to the guy a few feet away and the handler was afraid he'd flip out if he saw what happened!!!
