A Field Trip




with a week left of school...
i pulled them out early one afternoon and took them on a field trip.

we had to make it to the botanical gardens before the butterflies left.


it is one of my favorite things to do with the kids...each fall and spring.
{i tried to do this at home...it did not attract beautiful butterflies!}




the butterflies and flowers...complete happiness.


waiting.  waiting.  waiting.


finally.  one landed on his shoe!


these flowers remind me of childhood summers on mt. graham.




i'm so glad they do not feel too old for things like this.


we finished off the trip with some ice cream treats and relaxed in the tranquil garden...
