Spidey Sense

Abby Lab here. We got a colorful envelope in the mail - the Chicago Zoological Society has a new exhibit this summer at the zoo which is in Brookfield IL and a short ride away from our house. We remember the last one about dinosaurs Mom and Dad went to that and said it was really interesting.

Mom wore a special T-shirt for the dinos. But she said the dinos were animatronic and not real.

But this year's show seems to involve . . . .spiders.  Yes, "Amazin Arachnids".  It features dozens of big hairy tarantulas including the Goliath bird-eating tarantula which can be a FOOT long and they're throwing in some scorpions as well.
Mom muttered something about "what's next, the cobra petting zoo?" while Dad laughed as he knows the kids will love all the science and fun spidey displays.

My Spidey Sense is telling me I don't think Mom is going to go see it.

Mom wouldn't need a new T-shirt - she'd need a suit like this.


  1. Same for the Mom here - spiders are definitely not high on her list!

    pees: I hopes your Moms had a most FABulous Mother's Day!!!! ♥

  3. I don't mind non-poisonous snakes. But spiders, *shudder* Just stay away.

  4. Our mom would have the same outfit! When our mom was young, and dinosaurs covered the midwest, her school year often ended with a trip to Brookfield Zoo or the Museums.

    Stopping by for a visit!

  6. Maybe you need to go to youtube and meet Lucas the spider.
