I feel like I might be on the only person on the planet who can get a broken ankle from a pug/cocker spaniel.
Despite my stupid injury, we met some friends today at the Jordan Valley Conservation Garden Park for their "Party in the Park" event!
It was a lot of fun! Emie enjoyed it the most I think. There was a scavenger hunt for the kids that had them go to different stations to learn about pollinators and their purpose in growing plants and food! When they filled a stamp card from all the different stations they got to hand it in for a headband with little bee antenna attached! Super cute.
There was also a butterfly release of about 250 butterflies! The girls thought that was super exciting and I just took some photos and took deep breaths while willing none of them to land on me. (I like butterflies just fine from a distance but they totally gross me out up close. I DO NOT approve of them touching me. Ever. At all.)
Anna and Elsa were there, because of course they were, as was Spiderman, for photo ops!
|Pretending to be a bee and pollinating the right plants with the right pollen!|
|Matching the plant to the pollinator!|
|Yucca plant is fun to say!|
|Learning about our local water sources like snow run off and how we can help conserve water.|
|She was very proud of the button she earned for learning about the water cycle.|
|A story about what parts of different plants we eat.|
|Listening to a story all about bees sight and other senses!|
|Checking out some of the butterflies before they're released.|
|Best seat in the place!|
|There they go!|
|So excited to meet Elsa again!|
|Dot just kept saying "Anna! Elsa!" but wouldn't talk to them or go near them.|
