Isabel and Eloise truly enjoy seeing all of the people and walking through the exhibits. It is definitely a balancing act though, Eloise rushes ahead & Isabel likes to roar with delight while standing in everyone's way.
We headed upstairs to the insect hall where the girls enjoyed pretending to be Great African Termites and pressed all of the buttons about common household pests.
I worked very hard on not loosing my lunch when they offered to let the girls hold a giant cockroach. They both declined - instead they watched the honey bees for a bit and then we headed to the butterfly house.
Eloise has asked several times to visit the butterflies and I didn't realize we could every Tuesday!
Eloise was very patient and still, hoping to convince a butterfly to land on her hand. She was rewarded with several very close encounters. Isabel was a bit slower to the party. She was rather frustrated that I had decided to wear her. But boy she was full of energy last Tuesday afternoon & I thought that the butterflies and other visitors would fare better with my little spirit a bit restricted. When she would see a butterfly she would start lunging towards it, pulling me with her. In the final photograph of the day Eloise is busy telling her to "look not touch." If you can't tell, Isabel is trying with all her might to touch!
Such a fun outing!
