The Dow Gardens had their butterfly exhibit in March and April, and Julia and Ella LOVED it. We went there at least once a week, sometimes more. Ella would follow the butterflies around with her eyes, and I'm sure she would have loved to get her hands on one, but I'm thinking the butterfly would not have enjoyed that.
Julia really liked looking at the butterflies, but she was a little wary of actually holding one. Thankfully a friend snapped a picture of the one time she let one sit on her finger.
Julia also really liked the Julia butterflies. That's right, there are Julia butterflies. How cool is that? Here is a picture of one:
She would run around saying, "It's me! It's me!"
Julia also liked to visit the craft barn and pose for pictures. The egg:
The chrysalis and butterfly:
Also, Julia has made up a Blockburger song. It involves marching and lots of, "We are the Blockburgers! We are the Blockburgers! We've got the power!" It is awesome. Taking pride in her heritage!
