After doing our butterfly unit last month, Cyan was FASCINATED with the butterflies at the Seattle Center. Her painted ladies that we got flew away the second we openned up their little house. She didn't even get to 'release them'... they flew as fast as they could, right for the sun. She was very dissapointed that we didn't even get pictures of them. So when we went to the Seattle Center for the Dino Days, the butterfly habitat was where she wanted to be all day long.
You can just see the butterfly on Alex's pants. It would not get off and he was afraid to walk cuz he would hurt it. My sweet guy... so we called a helper over to get the beautiful thing off of him so he would be ok to move again.
This is a friends daughters hand... she had two land on her when we were in there... little butterfly whisperer. ;)
Some of these butterflies were beautiful beyond words:
