A few weeks ago we were in Phoenix for business, well hubby was. I go along for shopping while he is in his meetings. We all went to Cracker Barrel for lunch and I saw this and immediately thought of the 'Grand' Bug. Since he was at his dad's for the summer we got to hatch it during our 3 'Grand' Days in a row.

After 12 -24 hours it began to break out of it's shell.

By Day 2 he looked like this. We even had to put him in a bigger bowl.
Bug went ahead and broke off the rest of the shell.

Day 3 he got even bigger! We are going to leave him in the water for
a few more days and see if he gets even bigger.

I think I am going to go to our Cracker Barrel and
see if they have them and pick up some more.


  1. What fun and how entertaining! LOL
    Love to have breakfast at the Cracker Barrel...seems like everything comes with grits!

  2. Wow ! My 5 year old son would love this :)

  3. My boys got these as gifts from their Auntie, and my youngest boy couldn't wait either once it started to peek out. He climbed into the tub with it and ripped the shell off! Fun stuff!
