I can't remember who first called them this - probably Rachel - but butterflies have always been 'flutterbies' at our house.
I had to consciously stop myself from saying that when we bought tickets today at the Santa Barbara Natural History Museum for the butterfly exhibit (through Sept. 16).
Leanne wasn't sure what all the fuss was about.
She thought the butterflies were ok; she quickly figured out they weren't going to let her touch them and that pretty much ended her interest.
What she really loved was the water fountain at the exhibit entrance. Splashing in the water was lots more fun.
I thought Leanne might be afraid of Rex but she took him right in stride.
It's been awhile since we've been here; I forget what a nice little museum it is.
