Patrick's House of Horrors

Also known as..... the Butterfly Pavilion. Having never been there before I wasn't sure what to expect (besides the obvious: butterflies), so I was thrilled to see they have lots of cool things! Lots of bugs - huge spiders, beetles, leaf bugs, etc. They even have a small section of oceanic invertibrates, like jellyfish, starfish, and crabs - perfect! I was sure, since Patrick is somewhat fixated on some butterflies I colored, cut out, and laminated at home, that he would have a GREAT time, but he was terrified of everything, especially the crab and the butterflies. Here's what he had to say - he repeated it the whole 20-minute drive home!

"tabba? fwaid - sad. fwy? fwaid - sad. tabba? fraid - sad...."

At least I know it made quite the impression on him!

I guess we won't be going to the butterfly pavilion when we come out.

You sound just like Dad in that one home video, LOL. I kept waiting for you to say, "How many brothers and sisters do you have?"

..."Kari has a happy face." :)
