I got to go with Alayna and her class to the Butterfly Wonderland in Scottsdale! 🙂
We were so excited we could barely contain it! 😛
Alayna & Emmy!
When we first arrived we were handed some pretty cool 3-D glasses and watched a cool film about butterflies and their life cycle. It was really neat!
After the film we were taken to these window boxes filled with different species of butterflies at all different stages of transformation. The kids were bubbling over with amazement!
I didn’t realize until I uploaded this picture what the name of the butterfly is! LOL! I promise I didn’t know! 😛
The next portion of the trip took us to a holding room where they give instructions about how to treat the butterflies, etc. It also is there to ensure none of them fly in or out of the sanctuary.
Once they open the door it’s like you are in a movie! Hundreds if not thousands of butterflies are flittering everywhere!!!
The first little guy we was was just hanging out on a wall. It was just about the size of a hand. It was huge!!
Alayna LOVES insects and bugs. She was in HEAVEN!!!
There were so many different kinds to see! They were gorgeous!!!!
If you stood still long enough you could even get them to land on you! This made Alayna’s day….possibly year! 😀
If you look closely…Alayna is looking up..but there is a Scarlet Mormon flying right in front of her face!!!!!! LOL!!
This was by far THE BEST FIELD-TRIP EVER!!!! We really didn’t want to leave!
We want to go back with the whole family. It was so much fun!
