Yesterday Denver's Science Museum held one of its free admissions day. As a large group our family decided to head into the city and explore the museum. I can tell you that it is much bigger than the museum in San Francisco and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. When I was young I was a "tomboy" by many standards and grew up playing with insects, lizards and a few snakes. I can honestly tell you that I enjoy many creepy crawlies but abhor rodents such as rats. One of our grand daughters has a phobia about spiders so this nana decided that it might be beneficial to hold a large tarantula. I'm not sure I've ever held one before and I was fine with it. That is my hand; then our four year old decided that she would like to try as well...but it didn't go quite as smoothly~not to worry though no harm came to the very large spider.
We all had a wonderful time and learned a lot about our new home state. I hope our grand children will all remember, when they are older, how their nana was great fun.
