Butterflies and Babies

Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park is one place that West Michigan is so lucky to have. My first trip was yesterday. Adam, the beebs, my mother-in-law, and I went their mainly to see the butterflies (or at least me and my mother-in-law went for that reason).
The butterflies really loved this flower
 The butterfly room was really popular and very hard to manuever around. It was amazing to see so many butterflies though. Definitely worth it. There was one butterfly that especially caught my eye. It had gorgeous blue wings and it wouldn't sit still for me to take a picture of it. It was really big too. The butterflies are at Frederik Meijer Garden until April 30th.

We were drawn to the Children's Gardens fairly soon in the day as well. It was an amazing feature here. Nolan had so much he was able to do and Ryenn was happy to see all the other kids. Nolan's favorite part was the Great Lakes area. He was able to run around with other kids ad play in water. He did keep taking the older kids' boats which was kind of funny. He also really liked the brideges and stairs that you could walk around.
Ryenn was a happy girl

We also checked out the Sculpture park. The featured artist was an amazingly talented artists named Deborah Butterfield. She created horses out of metals, different pieces of wood, and other objects. I wasn't able to take pictures, but it was a great exhibit. Her exhibit runs until April 29, 2012.
