With our crappy annual cardiology appointment behind us, the kids and I fluttered to the botanical gardens to tour the butterfly house! It’s open from June until September, and is in the middle of the butterfly gardens. It’s been HOT this summer, but last Thursday was cloudy and mild—perfect for strolling the winding pathways.
Every time we come here I think, “we should come here more often.” I bought an annual membership last August and I still have to go a few times to make it cost effective over just paying each time we come. I definately wanted to participate in the “Frame up” the garden is doing in conjunction with the Chrysler Museum of Art. Submitted photos get projected onto a screen at the museum: living art! My kids are totally works of art.
We ate sandwiches, cheesesticks and applesauce, then continued on to the splash pad in the World of Wonders children’s garden. THIS is exactly what I pictured last year when I bought the membership: Eloise sitting at a tiny jet; Isaac running around. Two other babies Eloise’s age were similarly entranced nearby. This is a great place for babies!
