It's that time of year again

This is a pic of the largest moth on the planet!! whoa! wouldn't want that hanging out on my front porch lamp!
Taylor is checking out the caterpillars that turn into Monarch butterflies.

Last year we went to the Frederik Meijer Gardens on the first day of spring to see the butterflies that they hatch in their huge conservatory/greenhouse. This year I couldn't wait until the first day of Spring. We have gone twice already (we're members so it's "free")and I plan to go again, maybe even tomorrow! It's amazing to see them all flying around and feel the fabulous warmth of the greenhouse.

Taylor's Bday

Taylor is all ready for his Space birthday party !
All his friends had a great time at the party! We are so glad that it was fun (and that it's over).
Throwing the "flying saucers" we made (out of paper plates and bowls) through the hula hoop!
Game #2, Comet Toss! Throw the velcro-covered comets (styrofoam balls covered in foil)onto the felt solar system. Best part? Now it's a decoration in his bedroom!
Check out this sweet moon cake! Perfect size for the party too!
