Zachary had been planning a surprise for Ericka since last weekend. He wanted to take her to a local Butterfly House because she loves butterflies. Yesterday they planned to go and surprised us when they asked us to go with them. Awww! You can bet your boots we were not going to pass that opportunity up! It's not everyday your 18 year old son wants the whole fam to tag along with him and his girl on a date! LOL!
I'm so glad we went! We had a wonderful time and it's something Sean and I probably wouldn't have ever done on our own. The Butterfly House was a part of the Children's Garden which was part of acres of beautiful gardens. They had fun things for the little ones to do and wonderful sights for the biggins' to behold as well. The traffic was horrid though because the Jonas Brothers were in concert across the street. I couldn't tell you one song from the Jonas Brothers but apparently there were many, many others that could based on the number of cars packed into the parking lots and surrounding fields! As we finished touring the gardens we heard music and came upon a wedding being held right there in the gardens. Oh you should have seen that! We were desperately trying to keep the kids quiet so as not to disturb the ceremony. Let's just say we didn't stay in that area long! :)
