I remember last halloween it was a dark and stormy night. (well not really it was just chilly.) my friend max and I went up and down the
streets saying merry christmas to everyone after getting our candy. At one house the guy didn't say any thing or do anything he just gave us our candy and went inside he didn't even say your welcome
(yes we said merry chistmas) but 95% of the people laughed.We even said happy new's year and happy birthday.Wait witch holiday are we talking about again.

Yes, they are actually spitting real crickets. I had already spit mine and I don't mind saying it was pretty far... I think. I don't know if I had ever tried it before and don't have much to compare it to, but, ... it felt good. I was surprised to see the kids give it a go, especially Sam who is particularly finicky at times. And they told us the crickets were dead, but I'd swear that mine was kicking around some. So maybe they were just stunned.
Either way, the Bug Fest was a pretty interesting time, I'll have to admit. Lots of insect collections, live creepy crawlies, crafts, butterfly enclosures (this was unfortunately pretty weak), and even a bug cafe where, you guessed it, you could try real bug "appetizers". Of course the favorite was the chocolate covered crickets, but the salt and vinegar cricket wasn't too bad. I'm guessing it takes some time to get used to the crunching texture of dry insect legs.
In an age where success may be dependant on technology and effective use of it, I have created this blog for my son, Eli. He is five. I hope that this will be an avenue for him to explore, learn, have fun, and excel in a way that many of us never knew as kids.
