Groovy Bugs

A few creepy crawlies to get you in the mood for Halloween.

If you're ever in Victoria, B.C., the trip is not complete without a visit to the Victoria Bug Zoo

The Butchart Gardens is wonderful, but The Bug Zoo?  It's FANTASTIC!  It's educational and also a lot of fun... if you don't mind getting squeamish... which is really half the fun... right?  My kids are not adventurous at all (heck, they scream whenever they see a tiny little house spider), but they loved it.  According to Smarty Pants, it was the BEST zoo he's ever been to. 

happy vee was a little shell shocked at first...

but then he fell in love with mr. stick bug.

smarty pants surprised me when he volunteered to hold all of the bugs (at home, tiny gnats freak him out, so this was slightly out of character).  by the end of our visit, he was practically kissing them! 

Heh, heh.  Squeamish yet?
