butterfly pavilion

this past week dave took a couple of days off work and one morning we headed to the butterfly pavilion. i hadn't been since high school and like so many things, it was fun seeing it through the eyes of my kids.  
and don't let the name fool you, this place had more than just butterflies. 
like a horseshoe crab that we could pet. emma was all over it. logan on the other hand was a little apprehensive. we also saw lots of bugs.
and even got to hold rosie the tarantula!
logan's face cracks me up! and dave's hat is hiding the fear in his eyes ;) ha!
but the best part was going into the butterfly area (that was very hot and humid. emma's cheeks turned bright red in an instant) where beautiful butterflies flew all over...and even landed on us! it was so cool and the wonder and excitement in the kids' eyes was the best! emma, who loves any kind of animal, was enthralled by everything she saw. 
we even got to see them release some butterflies that had just emerged from cocoons and were taking their first flight in the "open!"
