At the weekend, Rascal requested that we visit the museum. She had a huge list of things that she wanted to see there... the dinosaur (of course); the cheetah (we didn't know what she was talking about till we got there and discovered a stuffed cheetah sitting behind the dinosaur); the moa cave; the shoemaker; the dolls house and much more.
It was with pure joy that we discovered the highlight of our trip- a special room filled with Monarch butterflies, caterpillars and chrysalides. Rascal was so excited when one flew over and landed on her shoulder- she has been talking about it non-stop ever since. (I'm sorry to report that we stumbled across the last day of this exhibit so don't go rushing off to Christchurch museum hoping to see them- you'll be disappointed).
I loved how Rascal dragged us back again and again, each time deciding whether she just wanted to look or wanted to hold a butterfly. Such a great experience!
I'm also loving uncovering the mysteries of our garden. So far this year we have discovered three fruits that we didn't know we had! Cape goosberries; a yummy cross between a raspberry and boysenberry and this mystery fruit. Can anybody tell us what it is? They grow on a tree by the bunch.
Joining with Kristy of Paisley Jade as I so often do on a Friday. Hop over and see what everybody else is loving today...
