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!
