Butterfly Rainforest

Here's Ember learning how much fun 7 years old can be. We went to The Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainsville Florida, where the have one of the largest butterfly collections in the world.

We walked through the gardens, that had an amazing collection of plants. There were thousands of butterflies flitting all around. It was breathtaking!!

I know this old broad could have done without the 93.9 °F with 57% humidity. Still, I'd do it again in a heartbeat!

Sere's one of Ember's favorites. It's a giant sloth!
she wanted the photo to look like she was being attacked!

There were also a skeletons from a mastodon, a woolly mammoth and a giant sloth!!

Ember says this one must have been Sid's (from Ice Age) big brother.
