We started out at the butterfly house. Lily & I have been to Botanica before, but the boys never have. They were pretty excited about all of these butterflies!
Lily kept saying, "You are going to LOVE it boys!!" :0) I'm glad they did, because she hyped it up a lot. ;0)
After the Children's Garden, we went over to their temporary exhibit, Once Upon A Time:
It was really cool. They had buildings that went along with different fairy tales. Here are Riley & Lily trapped in the witches candy house. Oh No!
The kids being bears:
They had these funny signs all over the place:
The princess & the pea:
They had storybooks at each spot where it would tell the story if you pushed a button.
This is Little Red Riding Hood's Grandma's house:
And Jack's house, complete with a beanstalk:
Riley was hanging out by two of the three Little Pigs' houses:
Then the kids discovered costumes! Here is Zach as the Big Bad Wolf blowing down the pigs' house:
And here he is after he died from not being able to blow the brick house down:
Aw! Little Red Riding Hood.....
Uh Oh! Little Red doesn't know what is sneaking up on her!
(Come on, no one was surprised by this turn of events.) ;0)
Two of the pigs must have rebuilt their houses!
