Amazing Bugs!

On this Veterans Day, as we are remembering all of our Heroes who protect our freedoms and why we get to protest, speak our mind, vote, worship the way we believe (not what a government says you will) and for me and my boys, go were we want when we want! Well, we went back to the Desert Botanical Gardens. I was torn between three choices: The Botanical Gardens, Zoo or Veterans Day Parade. I decided that seeing as how I was by my self a parade may be dangerous, with school out the Zoo too crowded for our liking, which left the Gardens! We definitely made the right choose!!!! I had thought that the butterflies were gone because it is mid-November and I thought that they left at the end of October! Well, I was wrong! They were calm today because it was cloudy and beautiful and cool. I also wanted to go back so we could have a more peaceful look at the Amazing Bugs that are on display.

Look close, you will see the ants walking down the anthill

Now some ones of my boys having fun and what they discovered!

Look in the center, you will see two eyes and some green within the algae, it is a American Bullfrog!

Most enjoyable part of the trip!
