Michigan City

We took the kids to Michigan City.  We got to explore replicas of the Nina and Pinta. Both were much smaller than expected!

Then we went to the Dunes and played in the sun all afternoon. Allan was able to borrow a stand up paddle board from a couple he started talking with.  I loved watching him try it out.

Everyone loved the water.  We also enjoyed rock hunting, finding fossils and learning how to skip rocks.

It was a great mini vacation!

Butterfly House

On part one, we see the animals.  But this is part two 🙂

We saw lots of different kinds of butterflies. They were mostly from Asia and Africa.  Daddy said he recognized some from when he was growing up. There was a blue one, and that one was my favorite.  It was Momma’s favorite too.

There were some Monarchs.  There were some that looked like Monarchs, but were white and black. There were also three little Button Quail.  One was white and the other two brown. We saw  some chrysalises. They were all different.
