Butterfly Museum

Today Peyton along with her friends Gavin and Caleb visited the Cockrell Butterfly Museum at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. The kids were free and it was only $8 for adults which makes for a cheap and fun activity! We were the only people there, so the kids were able to explore and not be in any one's way which is great when you have two curious toddlers. I didn't know whether she would like it but she loved it. When we first entered the museum there was a large caterpillar statue that they wanted to climb around which we attempted to get a photo of all three kids...impossible!

Part of the museum was interactive, giving you lots of info about butterflies, insects, and much more. The kids got to press buttons, look at real insects in cages, and then got to walk through an area that had butterflies flying around. Then we went downstairs to the rain forest like area and saw an iguana and a waterfall along with some butterflies. The kids mostly enjoyed the water puddles along the walk path! After the museum, we got our lunches and had a little picnic in the park outside. It was a wonderful day and we all enjoyed getting to soak up the sun! It was a wonderful day!

Peyton LOVED Easter this year! She had multiple Easter egg hunts and quickly picked up on how it all worked. She especially loved the plastic grass in all her many, many baskets! It was all over our house!

We had a wonderful time with my parents, John's mom and my sister Ashley who were all over for a late lunch! I love cooking for everyone!

Here are some pictures from the day!

Easter Portraits

I try make an effort to take Peyton to a park near our house and capture some more portrait like pictures every now and then. Well a couple of weeks ago, Granny and Papa came and helped me get some pictures of her in her Easter dress. I loved her Easter dress this year. It was so girly, frilly and pink. I have a feel she will more of a tomboy so I went ahead and got my girly dress in while I can.

I love this little girl so much!

Nice Weather...Nice Shades

Granny and Papa got Peyton some cool new shades to go with the beautiful Spring weather. She is one cool toddler!

Texas Blue Bonnets

By coincidence...I managed to go out and take this year's blue bonnet's photos the same day as last year! How funny! What is even more fun is looking back at last year's pictures and seeing how much she has changed! I put her in a white dress like last year and it is in the same spot so all that has grown is my precious little baby! I can not believe how fast time flies and how much she grew in a year!
