The Flower Fields

April seems to be the month of field trips!  This was one trip that I was so excited about and it did not disappoint.  The Flower Fields in Carlsbad are really a sight to behold.  My pictures do not do it justice.  The day we chose to go, the weather was cool, cloudy, and windy, therefore it made the temperature feel REALLY cold.  I know.  We live in Southern CA and our blood has thinned out some, but we all needed a cup of hot chocolate after our wagon ride.  BRRRR.

Safari Park Part Deux

There's no telling how many posts I will have of our adventures at the SD Safari Park.  I love that we have year passes to the SD Zoo and this awesome park is a part of the zoo.  We went to check out the butterfly house with the Estes family and had a great time.  The house is only open for about 6 weeks in the spring and we went the last week it was open.  Getting there at 8:00 am when it opened was a must since we had heard how crowded it can get even if you wait until 8:30.  All the butterflies were beautiful, but we all agreed that the Blue Morpho was our favorite. 
 

 
Seriously, with the face.  We are in TROUBLE!!


 
Deep in thought





 
Partners in crime.  They were mesmerized!



 
Hoping and waiting so patiently for a butterfly to land on their fingers.

 
Blue Morpho
