Butterfly Pavilion

Do you know what happens when you take a cold, cold camera into a hot and humid pavilion? a little thing called condensation. And i couldn't get rid of it. So, all the amazing photos i could have taken of the butterflies landing on Abby (grace liked to look but didn't want to touch)--didn't happen. So, just squint and look at this one.
A few weeks ago we met up with some friends from Boston. It was so fun to see them, and the kids had such a great time looking at all the bugs and other creatures.

The zip-line.
Abby, Grace and my friend, Meredith gave it a try....I wimped out.

Giant Spider Web for the....

Giant spider!
Grace was enthralled by this tarantula, but wanted nothing to do with touching it. Abby, on the other hand wanted the "I held Rosie" sticker bad enough that I don't think she really even thought twice about what she had to do to get it. Check that thing out!!

And again, Grace wanted nothing to do with the gi-normous praying mantis out front, so we just got Abby and Eliza in this pic.
Believe it or not, Grace had a great time...she's just not very "hands on" with things like this :) She has since decided that it wasn't really that scary, and that when she's five she'll stand next to it :)
Thanks, again, for the invite, Meredith!

we all had such a great time too! i'm glad your camera thawed out enough to get the picture with rosie! (next time, grace can sit on the praying mantis and YOU have to do the zip line!)

Did you get an "I held Rosie" sticker, that's really what I'd like to know...
