We headed out to the party hardy place called "The butterfly conservatory". It's actually a really cool spot. It is surrounded by a gazillion miles of gorgeous gardens...well they would have been but it was the wrong time of the year...so we skipped them and went into the conservatory.
Now my SIL's were thinking it was a place with a bunch of butterflies pinned to some styrofoam...and you just looked at dead bugs. They were thinking I was bat crap crazy and not the best tour guide in the world....but oh much to their surprise!
This place has some of the most amazing plants you'll ever see....exotic Tropical plants and stuff that doesn't even look real. And it's FILLED WITH BUTTERFLIES...the little critters are flying EVERYWHERE!
click to enlarge some of these...it's like the plants were growing butterflies!
So now who's the greatest tour guide in the universe.....that would be ME! Do I know how to show people a good time or what?
After cooling off from our vigorous butterfly extravaganza...we headed back to the good old US of A.....only after my mom totally flirted with the hottie at the boarder crossing booth. He wanted her passport...not her phone number...sheeesh mom! ( dad...I embellished that for blog reasons...you understand)
LOOK OUT NEW YORK CITY!!!!
