The Butterfly House

IMG_1688OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis morning son, Rob, and I took five kids to the Butterfly House. Fun…fun…fun! On the walk from the entrance to the butterfly house we saw these ducks in the stream.

This is Haleigh,

Bella was on crutches because she had foot surgery. We pushed her in a wheel chair from the Dow Gardens Entrance to the Butterfly House. It’s a long, beautiful

It’s very humid inside but it has to be. We hung our jackets in a room. My glasses actually steamed up! It gets very crowded because everyone wants to see the

All the kids got to hold a butterfly, some several different ones.

Armon.

 

 

 

 

 

IMG_1706Even I got into the act! Okay…so he just happened to land on my back! At least he stayed long enough to let us get a picture! He showed up great on my red shirt!
