A Birthday and a Butterfly

Yesterday was a big day around here as my youngest turned "5!"  We celebrated by having a BBQ, making snow cones and playing a riveting round of mini-golf.

We've also been fostering Monarch Caterpillars and had our first Butterfly emerge the morning of my son's birthday!  My son promptly named her "Joan" and we kept an eye on her to allow a safe release outside once her wings were dry.

Have an enjoyable Memorial Weekend, but remember freedom isn't free....
