visiting the butterflies

once again, these photos are all backwards, but i’d rather get another OHIO post up on the blog then spend the extra time to put them in order…. so i’ll let you enjoy photos from the afternoon visit we took to Miller Preserve to visit the butterfly room…

in case you’re wondering, the Miller Preserve has more than just the butterfly enclosure, but it costs money to go into the green house (or whatever it is) and we weren’t that interested. we were, however, thankful, that visiting the butterflies was free!

yes, we DID have to prevent alex from SQUISHING and SQUASHING the butterflies on the plants and the ground and her hand. there were a few close calls.

poor butterflies!

all the munchkins wanted was to hold a butterfly.

a butterfly landed on another girl and after several minutes, she showed samantha how to get the butterfly to walk from her own hand onto samantha’s hand. and then samantha shared that butterfly with the rest of us. until alex almost squished it. but then it landed on my shoulder and the “butterfly passing” started all over again.

thanks for the fun afternoon, Aunt Marcia!
