This weekend hubby and I and the kids ventured out to the Audubon Insectarium to catch a glimpse of some BUGS! BUGS! and more BUGS! And we even ate a few…oh what fun!

First we caught a glimpse of some pretty interesting bugs in the Live Animal Encounters. Roaches that didn’t even look like roaches because they actually evolved to mimic another bug, and these really pretty and shiny bugs that we found out are actually used to make jewelry in other countries. How neat is that?!

Along our way to the Bug Appétit we saw bugs like the really pretty pink katydid, and a blue crawfish, and the kids played in a “bug”.

Then, we entered Bug Appétit, the official Bug Tasting Zone! Have a look at what was on the menu…


We all tried the “Cricket” cookies.

No, I’m serious we did….Look!

Hubby was a little more adventurous and tried a few other things as well. He said the “Roasted Crickets” were quite delicious.


After we finished up, the kids were talking among themselves, when I heard Gracie say, “Yes, but it was just chocolate.” That’s when I realized she thought the cricket on top of her cookie was a really cute chocolate chip just in the shape of a cricket. Upon realizing that she had indeed just eaten a cricket she responded with, “Nooooooooo!”

And then I got the “how could you let me eat a bug” look. Ahh well, she got over it pretty quick. LOL!

We then moved on to learn about those pesky termites which hubby knows about all too well. (He’s an exterminator, specializing in termites.) Very interesting little bugs, just none that I want making a home anywhere near mine!

Now this is our 2nd visit to the Insectarium, but our first time viewing the animated 4D movie “Awards Night”! The host – a bug voiced by Jay Leno. It was super cute, and we loved the 4D effects!!

My oldest could not wait to get to the butterfly room!!! But first we got to look at beautiful butterflies and bugs preserved onto boards. The colors were just amazing.

Last stop was the butterfly room. Where hubby and I were quite popular. They kept landing on my shirt and on hubby’s hat. Such beautiful little bugaroos and great way to end our visit to the Audubon Insectarium!!



Stay tuned to next week’s post where I will tell you all about our visit to the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas!!!

I was provided tickets from the Audubon Nature Institute; however all views expressed are 100% my own.
