Butterflies and breadsticks family date.

What a fun family date! Last summer, Norah won tickets to the Butterfly House & Aquarium from our library's reading program (she was so thrilled to win!) and we finally made it happen to go! We would have made it sooner had it not been for COVID, but thankful for a fun indoor activity to do on this incredibly cold winter week!

Neat to be in a special little paradise for a bit! The girls loved seeing the many butterflies flying all around.

They thought it was so funny that one landed on Kley's head!

Norah had won five tickets, which works perfectly for our family, and we really wanted to wait for an open Saturday so Kley could join us and it was worth the wait! The girls really love Kley and it's well deserved- he's the best! :)

It was interesting to see the different feeding stations they had set up.

The aquarium portion was neat too! 

The girls loved this little bubble thing you could go in. I think Ellory will be a marine biologist or something like that when she grows up at this rate. The few times we have gone to aquariums in her life, she has absolutely loved it. She asked tons of questions and got excited over every display and tank. So precious! (And yes, Ellory still wears glasses, but they fog up so bad in the winter with a mask on and she hates that. Otherwise she usually wears her glasses really well, but for this activity we just let her take them off so she could enjoy it. If anyone has any tips on mask/glasses wearing without fogging, please let me know!)

We made a quick trip to Target and then had supper at Olive Garden! We had an OG gift card and we really wanted breadsticks. :) We are grateful to have had a very healthy winter as a family so far! We definitely haven't done as many activities as usual in the last year due to COVID, but we are gradually doing a few more yet also trying to be as careful as possible while doing so. I'm thankful we could have this time together on a super fun Saturday!
