Every week when school is out I try to have at least 1 or 2 days devoted to outings with the boys. This week my mom was able to be with us and we had such a great day Thursday. First we went to a greenhouse in a local park completely filled with butterflies, they were from all over the world & they hatch and live in this greenhouse, sometimes they land on you too. Its so relaxing in there except that it was the hottest place I've been in a long time. It was like a quick trip to the hottest day of the year in a Costa Rican jungle, although I wouldn't know because I'm too scared of spiders to go to Costa Rica.
Then we had a picnic in a nearby park & Karl rode alone on the zebra on the carousel for the first time. His older brother was in magic & clown camp all week so it was fun to just let a 4 year old do his own thing all day. We explored at his pace & it was great.
