museum wanderings

First time at Auckland's museum and after much exploring, it seemed like Jed was looking for something. Finally he said,' Mama, why is everything dead here?'

And, ' what are those numbers for?'

On that kiwi: 'So, it looks alive, but it can't walk, or eat...and it doesn't breathe?'
The drawers of keeled over birds are particularly wierd even for the most seasoned museum goer.
We were relieved to find many live exhibits alongside the dead ones in the kids exploration zones. We waited twenty minutes in high suspension watching a green gecko finally hunt, catch and eat a fly. Pretty exciting. Though i think the fly had had better days.

Day 6 of sick wee man. Operating on amount of sleep previously unknown to mankind (not mamakind!).
Looking forward participating in Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day. Aching to get sewing again.
