or so my children called them when they were small~
i love a conservatory!
i was so excited
when abbey suggested we take a trip
to cincy for the butterfly exhibition
we picked a day through the week
when neither hub had to work
and the kids
were out of school
our thinking was
it wouldn't be as busy
through the week
lots of others had the same idea
it was a beautiful day
with plenty of
flutterby's & flowers
there were real flutterby's everywhere!
how cute is she!
they landed on hats, faces, pant legs, purses
you name it, it had a butterfly on it!
and there were
plants shaped to look like flutterby's
there were even chairs shaped like butterfly's!
we were each given a little cardboard flower
upon entering that
you used to lure the butterfly's to you
so you could observe them closer
he held the flower so carefully
studied his new little friend
it was so fun to watch everyone
they were having the best time!
connected to the observatory
is eden park
which offers a
beautiful view of the city
we enjoyed a picnic in the park
took a stroll around the ponds
these two loved standing on the ledge
making their grampie nervous...*lol*
doesn't it look like if you stepped backwards
you would be a goner!
you wouldn't be
there's a flat area behind the ledge
still made the gramps edgy!
thanks deppen family
we had a great day!
