Butterfly Exhibit

One of the things we did during out Spring Break this year was visit "Wings of Wonder". I heard about it through a friend and decided it would be fun to check it out. I didn't know what to expect. It was beautiful and the kids just loved it.

Cannon was a little uneasy about the whole thing but then again why wouldn't you be there were some almost as big as his head.

We had to be very careful to not step on them, they were all over. My mom went to sit down and I noticed this one had taken a liking to her behind. Lucy yelled "Grandma don't sit you have a butterfly on your butt". I'm sure she appreciates that picture.

This particular butterfly stopped on Sterling's shoulder and refused to move, he thought that was so cool, and left it there for majority of the time we were in the atrium.

Talmadge loved every minute of this, although it was very hard to keep him from running around and trampling over all the butterflies. He was more interested in the frogs, and lizards that were there too.
This was Zoie's favorite one, mainly because it was the only one she got a hold of, you were not allowed to pick them up, or catch them. If they landed on you it was a free game, you just couldn't touch their wings. Also if they were on a plant you could very carefully put your finger next to them to see if they would crawl onto you. Zoie was a little apprehensive.

That looks like a lot of fun. Is it a permanent display, or was it traveling? Seems like it would be hard to be traveling....

I love your new picture with all the kids!

'love all of you,
