When traveling with baby, I need to carry a bigger handbag. So I carry a large shopper or tote that my friend gave me last year. It serves as a diaper bag because besides my wallets and other stuff, it can hold a couple of diapers, small baby wipes container, feeding bottle, water bottle, snacks, and others.
Today we went to Plano and I let play at the soft play area in Collin Creek Mall. The play area is already renovated and good looking so the kids enjoy playing better. Before that, I saw a sign about Butterfly Festival at the mall entrance upon entering the building. Well, I thought, we will try to see that after playing. And we did.
The admission fee is $6.00 for adults and $3.00 for children. I tried to ask if they will ask fees for infants. The person-in-charge said she will only ask for the adult fee if I will hold my little one inside. Strollers are not allowed and they don’t allow infants to walk around because they might step on the butterflies. And so, we went in and I let my daughter experience the scenery. Butterflies are in a big tent with flowering plants in it. There are hanging feeders too.
When I showed the pictures to my husband, he said these are Monarch butterflies. I saw other butterfly colors too. Maybe he can identify them for me too. By the way, the festival is until May 20, 2012.
