On Sunday we went down to Pismo to look at the butterflies. When we got there, we discovered that we were either too late, or there just aren't as many butterflies as there used to be.
The kids did find one close enough for them to really look at.
Then they practiced being butterflies.
We walked all along the path, looking at the ducks, until we got to the beach area.
Andy loved running down the dunes.
John told me to jump....so I did.
Then Julie did.
Then Andy thought about it.....but didn't.
Sweet girl singing and having fun.
And this is what I did the whole time.......
Not really, only for enough time to John to take a picture. It was such a beautiful day. Even though the butterflies were MIA, we had a great time.
And it was so crazy because when we got there, Julie said, "We have been here before with Memere, but no Daddy."
She is correct, Mom and I took her there once.
She then said. "We didn't go in this gate, we went in the gate with the bushes."
Again, she was correct, there is another gate at the other end that has shrubs on either side of it. And she remembered this from when we were there last time....almost exactly 2 years ago.
