Happy Belated Mother's Day and Butterflys!!

Hope everyone had a great mother's day!!

Our latest project:

Here are our new pets! all 5 of them :)

These caterpillars love to eat! They are growing so fast.

Here are all 5 caterpillar's as chrysilades :)

Once the 5th caterpillar climbed up to the top of the cup we relocated them to the butterfly house

sorry the picture isn't better I am still learning how to use my new camera

the first butterfly hatches the others are still in their chrysalides

Two of the butterflys, the one on the left was drinking the sugar water

these two were just passing the time :) :)

This was the 5th butterfly to hatch:

We are planning on letting them go this weekend! It has been SO cool watching them :)

Bought this at the store the other day as we hope to do lots of swimming this summer. I have never seen one like it and thought it was cool. No more blowing up floaties :)

Had enough - take it off!

In case I didn't get over this way, Happy Belated Mother's Day to you too. We are the proud parents of a beautiful monarch butterfly which we'll release this weekend as well. Must be a trend.
