We woke up to a slightly gloomy morning and a dusting of snow. I was trying to decide where to go for a Wednesday adventure, when a friend posted about visiting the Butterfly Pavilion. It seemed like a great idea so we got tickets and headed south.
You must purchase tickets in advance because they limit how many people are allowed in. Also you have to wear a mask while visiting. I am so glad that Emmy will now wear a mask without complaint.
The kids LOVED the exhibits with all the spiders, scorpions and bees.
There was a touch pool area with Sea Stars and Horseshoe Crabs
A favorite part was the area where you can walk in with the butterflies. Both Cannon and Emerald were so excited about having butterflies land on them.
Before leaving they each chose a cause to donate to.
They also have an outdoor garden that would be gorgeous in the spring/summer.
Emmy and Cannon loved exploring the area even if the plants weren’t blooming.
We had a great morning, I love these days that I have with both kids, spending time together. I can feel just how limited they are.
In the afternoon we had to get to Costco because we are still on storm watch.
Weather Underground is saying 27 inches, but I keep hearing 3-5 feet for the weekend, so we shall see. I just wish we were getting more in the mountains because that is what fills our reservoirs and fights off drought.
Had and great adventures lately?
Do you get spring snow where you live? March is one of our heaviest snow months.
