Butterfly House

One of our favorite things we did on Mackinac Island was go to the butterfly house.  It was so much fun to see all the butterflies so up close and personal.  They landed on a lot of us, too, including me.  Bria was a little disappointed that she never had a butterfly land on her, but she still thought the butterfly house was probably her very favorite part of the trip.

Some pictures....

  3. My grandmother once gave me a little trinket box in the shape of a butterfly that said, "Happiness, like a butterfly, settles upon you when you least expect it."
