Today Allison and I went to Butterfly World. This was such a beautiful place. We took tons of pictures all over the place. Butterflies were everywhere that we looked. I remember seeing a butterfly exhibit in Tulsa Oklahoma, but this was much much better. There were so many butterflies. Then on top of that there were tons of birds and flowers and an insect zoo. This is a great place to take some inquisitive kids because you can get a tour book or even a guided tour. There is so much to see and learn. There is even an area where kids can get up close and personal with Lorikeets. They look like a cross between a parrot and a parakeet. Very friendly birds. Very pretty ones too.

This is our last day in Florida and we spent it at the Butterfly place then had lunch at Bru’s Room, fried pickles, hot wings and ribs, very tasty. We spent some more time at the pool and then had a nice dinner. After dinner we went to ColdStone Creamery for delicious ice cream. I had the Shamu flavor which was sweet cream, white chocolate chips, double Oreos and fudge. Very, very tasty. Then when we got home I helped Marcia and Allison get the web came situation figured out. Now they can talk back and forth to each other and Grandma MArcia can see the baby (when he/she arrives) and Allison and the Grand-kitties.

Here are some additional photos that I took today at Butterfly World.
