This weekend we took an impromptu trip to Italy for the long weekend. It's always great for the wee man to get to spend time with his Nonni. It was lovely and warm and we spent lots of time outside in the garden. The wee man was at long last introduced to bugs and creepy crawlies. I was very proud of how eager he was to touch and feel everything unlike his rather squemish mother! The only hard part was to convince him not to bring them home. Other than a few pokes to the snail neither animal was hurt during this experience :) I on the other hand unfortunately have to admit that quite a few ants were maybe sqooshed.
