>Happy Father’s Day!!

>We had a great weekend camping…after we got there! It was fun to see all the grandparents and to spend Father’s Day with all of the dads in our life. We got some fabulous pictures. The boys really liked camping and can’t wait to go again next month. We lucked out with the weather and only got a couple showers on Sunday before we left. It was hot at times but it was bearable. Hopefully the weather will be nice for the weekend we are going in July.

All the butterflies ended up opening before we left for the weekend. Here is a picture of what they looked like.

>We have butterflies

>All of our caterpillars have turned into butterflies. It is great to watch new life emerge and fly off into the big world. The boys especially thought it was fun that one of them decided to fly around the kitchen! I will post a picture of them after we get back from our weekend of camping.

Have a good weekend.

>Caterpillar Farm Operation

>Not really sure what is going on around our house the past few days but we have found over 30 caterpillars. They were two different kinds. We knew there was one nest in the neighbors apple tree just over our drive way. Those all came out on Sunday. We kept them but they didn’t make it. Today we found a TON more (17) and we have kept them and put them all in cups with some grass and a stick. So we have 17 cups all set up with one caterpillar in each. Last year we found the same kind and they made their crysalis and turned into butterflies. It is kind of exciting to see what will happen. It will be our science experiment for the spring I guess!

The other news is that Avery has decided that he will not be taking the training wheels off his bike EVER again! He was all excited to go ride his bike again yesterday before supper. His second try he got a little wobbly and neither one of us was close enough to catch him. He ended up with road rash on his face. He was not pleased and refused to even eat supper because he was so upset. He said to me ‘you should have caught me’. When I told him I was too far away to catch him and he then said ‘well then daddy should have caught me!’ Broke my heart. But we put the training wheels back on and went for a walk later after supper so he isn’t too freaked out although he is a little more gun shy!
