Saturday morning my Mom, Kevin, Matthew, Hailey, Emma, the girls' friend Natalie, and myself all piled into the van and headed down to Butterfly Flutterby. This was the first year for Nat and Matt, but the second time around for the girls. Last year the girls were a bit young to participate in the butterfly release. This year was wonderful cause I was able to make them some tutus and butterfly wings and they were able to parade down Main st. in Grapevine and be little celebraties waving to the crowd. Matt slept the entire parade, but he got just as many "awwwww!" comments as the girls did. If anyone has a suggestion for how to make a "macho" butterfly costume for Matt next year, please let me know cause I'm at a loss. I think that events like this are perfect for the kids. They got to see real Ble Morpho butterflies...not just see cartoon ones on Go Diego, Go. And they are starting to have a real appreciation for animals, nature and family time.
