Exotic Animals And Painting Adventures

We had the best tour club adventure to date! The group met and had a tour of Hoffer’s Tropic Life Pets. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I figured fish. Few pet stores seem to have anything but birds and fish these days. I was wrong – very wrong! This pet store had alligators, chinchillas, rats, mice, hamsters, fish, sting rays, snakes, hedgehogs, etc. The best part is they even let the kids hold and touch a ton of animals – chinchilla, hedgehog, snake, rats, bearded dragon, and a turtle. Alex loved it (and I just quietly stepped back “to take a picture” when the snake came out)!

Wade said no more painting in the shower a while ago (and he cleans the bathroom so he makes the rules). Today was nice enough that Alex could paint outside. Of course, then he immediately abandoned the paper and painted his foot. (The water hose came out next – see here.)
