Breakfast with the Butterflies

During our recent vacation to Phoenix, Nana and Pap were able to secure a reservation for a breakfast with the butterflies event at the Desert Botanical Garden. The breakfast was coincided with the opening of the spring butterfly exhibit. The kids had the opportunity to create several butterfly-themed crafts, including decoration of butterfly cookies.

This piece of chocolate never made it to the cookie.

Each of the kids was given a pair of wings.

The one-man band entertained his eager audience following breakfast.

No pictures this early in the morning, Dad!!

As the one-man band was wrapping up his show we found a place in line for the butterfly pavilion. Owen had fun matching butterfly pictures in the brochure to the butterflies he saw in the exhibit.

Our visit to the Desert Botanical Garden also coincided with the Chihuly: The Nature of Glass exhibit. The colors and shapes of the art glass work so well with the desert setting. In one nervous moment Owen reached out and grabbed one of the pieces of glass - three year old boys can be lightning fast.
