Happy Birthday, Rachael!
Monday, March 07, 2011
One of the places we went to visit this weekend was the Victoria Butterfly Gardens. We saw lots of beautiful butterflies who weren't very cooperative when it came to taking pictures.
After we had been there a while and we were getting ready to leave I asked the kids if there was anything that they still wanted to see. Jaden said, "Dine-dine." Dinosaurs? You want to see dinosaurs? I don't remember seeing any dinosaurs here. You show me.
So he wandered around for a while looking for these dinosaurs he was sure he saw
I guess those long necks do look sort of Brontosaurus-like, now that I think about it!
We went to the Undersea Gardens and got to hold some Sea Stars
and then we went to the Royal BC Museum. We spent hours here just looking at all they had to see. We also saw an IMAX about horses.Sunday was our last day but we didn't need to catch the ferry until 3:00 so we had lots of time for fun. First we went to the Beacon Hill Children's Farm.
They had some cute baby goats Rachael fell in love with.
Then we went to the Victoria Butterfly Gardens. They also had birds, fish and flamingos there.
And we even had time to go to the Scratch Patch in Mineral World where the girls each got to pick out some pretty rocks to take home. Unfortunately we were too busy chasing Jaden around to get any pictures. We had lots of fun on the weekend, but chasing a two year old around everywhere doesn't exactly make it relaxing. Good memories, though.
