We visited the butterfly exhibit at the Long Island Aquarium yesterday. I was the only parent able to go because my daughter has an epi-pen- more on that another day.
So, we boarded a smelly school bus. That's right, I said smelly. Do 3rd graders need deodorant? Apparently, some do.
I kind of leaned over to see if my daughter was one of them. She was all like, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?" Nothing, my dear, nothing! Check- we can wait for the deodorant.
The kids were so excited and I have to say, it was a lot of fun.
They had "food" dishes set up all around for the butterflies to land on.
They showed us chrysalis' that the butterflies were coming out of.
This is actually a moth! I can't believe how huge it is.
They had a little bird aviary and the kids were able to let the birds land on them.
One day she will look back and be thankful.
Or I will hold it over her head.
Whatever works. wink ;)
Up next: chimpanzee movie field trip- doesn't anyone remember I don't like animals?
