We ended up going to the Chicago Botanic Garden to see their butterfly exhibit We were all so very excited to go, the skies were clear so we headed down the road. We have been going to the gardens for around thirty years, especially when we lived in the city and a large expanse of green called to us urban dwellers.
Penny was so excited to go into the butterfly enclosure. The first butterfly she saw, well, she was thrilled. These magical large blue butterflies floated through the air and then landed on people...That was the first problem. The second problem was the butterfly above. It looked like it had a big eye on it. Totally freaked our girl out. First she was in my arms, then in Grandpa's. Finally they had to leave, she buried her head in Grandpa's chest and wouldn't even look at the butterflies!
Such a beautiful adventure, though you never know how children will react to a new experience. Don't worry, the little one said she had a great time and the butterflies were "magical".
More soon on our visit to the gardens. Local girls, the exhibit is open until September. I am going back for sure.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy this beautiful day.
