Garden Park

 Remember last year when we went to Garden Park to see the Butterfly Release?   Well, we didn't feel like going this year because it was so crowded last year.  So a few days before it was going to happen, I heard we could go to the park and check out the butterflies that were coming out of their cocoons.  So I took the kids over on a hot afternoon and we pretty much had the place to ourselves.  There was one scout troop there...but that was pretty much it.  It was great. 

 Emery always finds all the benches and requests pictures.  ha ha.

 The caterpillars were so cool to watch.  The redish one on the right was moving around a lot.  It was neat to watch how they move around.

 This was the only butterfly that we saw outside of its cocoon.  

 Any time there is a sand pit, before I can say no (to taking their shoes off), the kids have their shoes off and are in the sand.  Silly kids.  

 There were lots of pretty flowers around to see.

 And of course we always need a picture on the ladybugs.  There are five lady bugs and only four kids.  Next time we will have to bring a friend with us so we can fill up all the lady bugs.  :)

This was at a different park, but these girls are just so cute.  Emery has the best smile and Riley is so fun.  I love that I get to spend my days with these cuties.
