Akansas Wildlife Program With a Baby Alligator!

Friday morning, our art teacher mentioned that our local library was having a program on Arkansas wildlife on Saturday afternoon.  Our library has been getting much better at becoming more child friendly and has been doing more programs for children.  We do not usually go because they have been having them at 1:00 which is nap time for the little girls.  When our art teacher mentioned that they were bringing a baby alligator to the program, the younger boys really wanted to go.  First there was a 20 minute program about the different kinds of wild life found in Arkansas and skins and skulls of the various animals.  Honestly, my older children have heard this program before, but they still like to see the skins and skulls.  Then, out came the baby alligator.  All of the children that wanted to could hold or touch the alligator.  Christian, Anthony, and Alex all wanted to of course.





Lily didn't hold it, but she wanted me to take her picture (yes that is a large bandaid on her chin, she is ok)
After the Wildlife program, they were having story time, followed by a craft, and punch and snacks.  We did not stay because the girls were very tired and had been good long enough.  We checked out our books, got a treat bag and headed home.  Another time we hopefully would be able to stay longer because Christian was very interested in story time. It was fun though. It's not every day you get to hold a baby alligator!
