Praying Mantis Babies

Filed under: — Andy @ 7:53 pm

Melina has had a Praying Mantis egg sack in her bog box for a few months now, and finally today in the morning they all hatched and started crawling all over the bug box. So we took them outside and set them all free in the garden.

On a particularity nice Sunday we decided to take a drive to Soileyu seaside park as we heard there are lots of things for kids to play on. The yellow flowers were in full bloom, we rode the Ferris wheel, played on the jungle gyms and slides, and went down the sledding slope.
