The Butterfly Palace

Faith earned 240 stickers for good behavior and her prize was a trip to the Butterfly Palace. So, we drove up to Nixa last Sunday night and stayed with Sam & Susie. We had fun visiting them. We got up on Monday morning and drove to Branson to see the Butterfly Palace. Faith had a great time and the butterflies were beautiful. We went through an Emerald Mirror Maze, which was really funny. We scared ourselves a few times turning a corner and seeing someone standing there, it was actually our reflection. We saw a 3D video about Praying Mantis' and Butterflies, which was interesting, but I'm afraid not really child appropriate. (The butterfly gets eaten by the praying mantis at the end of the film, we were a bit suprised by that!) We got to wander through a room with plants and over 2,000 butterflies. Faith really enjoyed her visit there. She already has her next prize lined up, the Zooquariam. We made a trip to Bass Pro Shops and had a quick dinner with Sam & Susie before heading home. Faith stayed the night with Grandma Phyllis that night, which is always a treat and she had a great time! Thanks Mom!!
