While in Newport, we played tourist with the Gordon Girls. Katie had heard of a butterfly garden that had just opened up, so we decided to check it out. It didn't have the diversity of the butterfly exhibits the zoo used to have, but Hayden & Bayley really liked being able to handle the butterflies.
Hayden was a butterfly magnet! They just came to him...probably because of his red shirt, but my money is on his hands having a slight sheen of sugar.
Grace, who loves pictures of butterflies and practically bursts with excitement when there is a butterfly in the yard...wasn't sure what to make of the Painted Lady to hitchhiked onto her backpack and stayed for the whole visit!
Even Bayley got in on the action, letting a butterfly ride on his head!
