Butterflies and Contests

If you are a regular reader, please do not be offended that I haven't been commenting as much this week. Has anyone else been going crazy entering contests instead of commenting on posts?
I was planning to give away two really cool pairs of socks my sister gave me, but I couldn't figure out how to attach the button so I will save them for the next time around. You will love em though...they're awesome.

Today was Noah's field trip to the Meijer Butterfly Garden's. Every parent from his class went. It was beautiful day. I got a couple of shots of the whole class before we went in: (Noah is 2nd from the right)














a pretty good one of my two by the flowers (they're just SO handsome)...















and the forbidden likers (not lovers...they're five).















I love this picture. They were told that if they stood still with their arms out, then a butterfly might land on them. Noah started doing it (far left) and the rest of the class joined in.















I am actually not much of a photographer so I am quite proud of my butterfly shots.














I hope my dad sees them...I think he would appreciate the artistry.












Happy Thursday.

Oh I'm sorry I didn't have a chance to help you with the button! You don't have to wait until the next giveaway carnival though - you can hold a giveaway any time you want. :)

Love your butterfly photos! We haven't been in the past couple of years - it looks like Noah's class was having a great time. The picture of him and Kylie holding hands is cute - and I love the one of the boys together. :)

My daughter is always asking me to create our own butterfly garden! --This seems much nicer!

Glad to know that my daughter is not the only one who is "in love" at such a young age!

Thanks for your visits and comments.
