When Cousins come to Town

Everyone has to hold the new baby and take lots of pictures Smile I am not sure what Sammy was scowling about.. I think it was that it wasn’t his turn to hold his baby cousin!

This sweet boy offered to give Sammy the one he was holding. You dipped your finger in the nectar then the butterflies would drink it off your finger. So they would climb over onto your finger. Sammy was patient with this. We however, almost killed one when it flew away because Sammy tried to catch it! Woops!!

Sammy could have spend all day in there with the butterflies!! I think we will have to try and catch a caterpillar and watch it change to a butterfly. My animal and bug loving boy would be in heaven!

These two beautiful ones didn’t want to come down low enough for anyone to catch them:

The butterfly exhibit was at the greenhouse that we go to for some fall fun. It however wasn’t as good in the Spring for this as it was in the fall. We still had a blast and got our money’s worth!
