Butterfly/aquarium visit.

We had a great weekend! It was good mix of activity and relaxation. Friday night Kley and I had a date, Saturday we spent most of the day in Sioux Falls, and Sunday we had some friends over for supper and grilled outside. (Summer is the best time to have people over because you can just grill and the kids can play outside!) We also threw in some other weekend staples like Saturday morning lawn mowing and Sunday afternoon naps. 

We went to Sioux Falls to visit Kley's grandma, who had a stroke last week and is in the hospital there. She is doing well, considering, and we are thankful for good reports so far and thankful we got to see her! While we were there, we also went to a park and the Butterfly House and Aquarium, which was a lot of fun! Norah loved seeing the fish and butterflies.


Touching some sort of sea anemone. 


We tried to tell her the real names, but those fish are always just Dory and Nemo to Norah.


Checking out the fish in the 3D bubble!


It was really neat and fun for a one time trip, but the aquarium was pretty small.


Lucy's favorite spot, being held and on someone's chest. The twins were there and happy, but didn't really care about the fish or butterflies. Ha.


In the butterfly garden!





I was wearing Ellory in the carrier and she kept bumping my camera, so I tried my best.




I asked the worker to take our picture, and he acted like he'd never taken a picture in his life. This is what we got, and I felt bad asking him to try again, so this is our one shot wonder!


Norah has been all about the monkey bars lately (with help).
