butterfly wonderland

One of our favorite things about moving to the Phoenix valley is all the opportunities we have to go out and have some fun! Our little small town in Utah didn't even have a splash pad- such a shame! So we have been on the go since moving here and having the BEST time! I'm loving the time I get to have with Mia right now because I'm sure life will slow WAY down once baby brother arrives, and honestly? Taking two littles out on my own totally terrifies me! So we are soaking up as much adventure as we can for now!
Another thing I'm loving about this move is the amazing friendships we've made already! My sweet friend, Aubrey, invited us to go check out Butterfly Wonderland and it made for such a fun morning. Mia is obsessed with her kids so she loved following Drake around, and pushing Emery in the stroller every chance she could!
The actual butterfly room was beautiful but so humid! I loved seeing all the different butterflies flitting around but they made Mia a little nervous :) Her very favorite part was the "fishies!" in the little pond... go figure ;) I'm trying to be better about documenting our adventures (seriously, I've hardly blogged about any of it!) so here's a peek into our morning at Butterfly Wonderland!
Aubrey snapped this photo first thing when we walked in the butterfly room... I love Mia's nervous face, ha ha!
She hated that the butterfly was on me but she got a little braver as I coaxed her into a closer look!
We have officially hit the stage where Mia has no time for pictures with mommy!

How perfect, I wish we had a place like that here! And I love both of your dresses!

oh hey I know that picture stage - no time for a single one. That dress on you is oh so pretty though. We have a ton of butterflies in the yard, but Aria never seems to care at all about them. Not sure if she'd get into a butterfly garden place either. We have some though! Might be worth a try.

SO happy y'all are loving the PHX metro area! Can't believe it's been over 6 months since we left!

So fun!
I'm obsessed with butterflies and love butterfly pavilions (even if they are beyond humid). How lucky that you even had a butterfly land on you! Before you know it Mia will be loving those butterflies, too!

You look GORGEOUS in that dress. What a fun adventure for you and Mia...I'm sure it won't be long before she's all about those butterflies. :) {P.S...I've been following along but totally slacking on the comments...congrats on the little BOY...how exciting for you!!}

I'm glad she warmed up to the butterflies after a while! I love how her shoes match your dress perfectly!!

So happy the move was a great step for you guys!! Even happier that Mia has adjusted so well! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

Confession: I'm with Mia on the butterflies. I'm actually terrified of moths (seriously, petrified) and butterflies are too similar for my taste. You look so pretty! Love these pictures!

We went to an aquarium on our trip a few weeks ago and they had a bird cage you could go in and they could land on you and Brylee hated every second we were in it:/. Looks like a fun afternoon!

Your outfits are so cute!!!!! Glad you have more fun now that you're in Arizona. One of the reasons I want to move to Florida is because there's so much to do outdoors year round.

What a neat place! I love butterflies, so I know I'd be happy there! And loving that dress, so pretty :)

Mandie said...

I've gone to a butterfly garden in Milwaukee & I loved it...however, I love butterflies & they choose to land more on my sister than me...she, on the other, hand was not so keen on the idea. Ha, ha!

I haven't been there yet. I've been by there but i'm a cheapo and i don't want to pay for it. lol! im pretty sure Camden will end up killing all the butterflies so for their safety we'll stay out, for now.

Candace Shiflet said...

I nanny so I have been there a few times! It is sooo cool!! and we always try to get the butterflies to land on us haha did you pet the sting ray? that was probably my favorite part because it's so weird but so cool! looks like you guys had fun :)

Sounds like you guys had a great time despite Mia being a little shy of the butterflies at first. At least there were the fishes at the end to make her happy :)
