Breakfast with the Butterflies

Gabe and I didn’t let stormy weather stop us from enjoying the butterfly release party at the botanical gardens on Saturday.
We were looking forward to a yummy breakfast with butterfly shaped pancakes like they had last year, but they didn’t have any this time. Not to be a “Negative Nellie”, but it seems that they increased the price and lowered the quality of the butterfly release party compared to last year. Here’s a link to the photos and video from last year’s fun party: Butterfly Celebration 2009. This year they only had one craft, no games and we paid $16 for the two of us to eat store-bought food with a few grapes and strawberries on the side.
What really matters to me is that Gabe had a good time, and he did (as always) – so that’s great! He enjoyed the craft and was very interested in the large butterfly they gave him. Here’s a video of him releasing it:
The butterfly landed nearby after being released, so Gabe was able to see it up close and gently touch it some more. He even posed for a close-up photo for me:
