We had a fun morning with my Mom at the Butterfly Pavilion! I had never been there before and I was so impressed with all there was to discover! It was SUPER crowded with school groups, so I'd like to go again with the hopes of having a little more room, and time, and quiet to explore with the boys. Here are some photos from our day.
This place was not just about the butterflies!
We saw pretty fish!
Inside the butterfly area...
My camera got so steamed up from the warm butterfly habitat! But the picture is still super cute!
And he RAN through the exhibit having a blast exploring! Here he is trying to chase and grab the butterflys! Can you see them just above the bush on the left side of the photo! We had to explain to him how this was NOT how to explore this delicate creature! Good thing they are fast fliers!
Peek-a-boo from a little chrysallis!
After a group of about 100 5th graders entered this area we decided to head back out to check out some more animals! Here Nolan is touching a Horseshoe Crab and Sea Urchin.
And he even got to hold a REAL tarantula! He is so brave when it comes to animals! He loved it! Grandma, Heath, and I took a pass on this experience!
It was so hard to catch a good photo of the butterflies.
Grandma and the boys! Nolan is proudly sporting his..."I held Rosie" sticker! Rosie is the name of the famous tarantula!
It was extremely humid in the butterfly pavilion! Here's a beautiful picture of my mom and I with deflated hair after our 2nd trip around the butterfly area!
We sure kept busy while my mom was here! The time just flew by! And as always, we had a project planned...and some project it was...more on that tomorrow!
