We went to visit the butterflies a few weeks ago. E was entranced. Before we entered we were cautioned about the fragility of the animals' wings, and how we are not supposed to touch them purposely. We were also told, though, that they frequently land on their visitors, so if they touch you, please be a gentle and gracious host. E loves a clear set of instructions to follow, so she wandered through the entire greenhouse with her hand extended, hoping to play tarmac to any winged creature who would have her.
Referring back to this day, she's mentioned twice since Wednesday that for this weekend she'd like to touch horsies now.
