I mentioned we went to the Titanic Museum. Is that not the coolest?
The only thing I was disappointed about was that due to copyrights, no photos were allowed inside the museum.
Aviana was interested in learning more, so of course, I turned to my home away from home, the library. We found a super duper book called
A mom, who survived the sinking with her husband and only son, wrote the story for her son a couple of years after the sinking. She gave it to him for Christmas in1913. Many years later, a relative found the book among the mom’s belongings and published it. The book includes both illustrations and photographs.
It’s enough to give you goosebumpies. Go out and get it right now! I’d love to hear what you think of it.
We also visited The Butterfly Palace that day; here is a sampling of our morning.
Aviana was earnest in her love for this chair in the bathroom. She wanted me to take a picture of her on it, and of it by itself. I am earnest in my love for my daughter.
When this butterfly opens its wings, it looks like this:

Notice a butterfly over Kevin’s shoulder?
What a cool visit!

There’s a great Magic Treehouse book about the Titanic too–we bought it at the Titanic exhibit that was traveling last year. A great one to read aloud together.
Love that butterfly bench!
That butterfly that looks so ordinary with folded wings and displays that wonderful iridescent blue with them open . .
We have a place here similar to the butterfly place you went to. I’ve only been once, but it’s really neat how the butterflies just fly all around and will land on you. I’ll have to plan a trip up there again one of these days. Of course you’re not allowed to bring strollers in.
The butterfly pictures are so neat!
You captured some fantastic shots! I can’t wait to go find that book and read it!
What great pics! Kids are so funny with what amazes them, things like bathroom chairs. 🙂
I’ve gotta tell you, I have this very irrational fear of butterflies and moths so the thought of a butterfly museum is extremely creepy to me.
Way cool. I remember reading everything I could about the Titanic as a kid. I now regret having not gone to see Titanic stuff when it was touring through our area.
Those butterflies were beautiful, too.
Those are some great pics! Loved the chair in the bathroom and your love for your DD. Loved the butterfly bench and that beautiful butterfly which is blue when opened. What a fun experience for you all!
The titantic book looks cool! How awesome to get to see history like that! I want to go…so sad yet fascinating. The chair thing is adorable!
Wow, that looks like a ton of fun. I love butterflies. I wish I could go!
LOVE all these photos, the frog, butterflies, but especially the last one of all 5 of ya’ll!!!
