Not a girly-girl

on September 24, 2009

blog 029We took the kids to Nate’s school carnival last Friday.  They had a lot of fun playing all the games at the various booths.  Towards the end, we discovered the “Fear Factor” booth and just in time for the live snake feeding.  They were feeding two large snakes two very large rats!

Tessa immediately pushed her way to the front of the line where she watched the gruesome event from beginning to end.  She was mesmorized by every bit of it and not one bit afraid of it….and, let me tell you, it was not a pretty sight.  Even as that snake got right up to her face with the rat’s feet and tail hanging out of it’s mouth, she just turned and smiled at me.  She loved loved loved it.

After the rat had been completely consumed, we dragged her away.  I stopped to give Nate his last tickets and turned around to find her elbow-deep in a bucket of meal worms!!

    She is so cute! I bet it was pretty interesting. I’m excited to have her tell me all about it.

    I forgot we took pictures of that. Also, I forgot about the meal worm thing- that is funny.

    By the way, that is dried cotton candy on her mouth, not blood.
