I woke Beki up early, ummm...9:30, to get ready to go visit the St. Louis Butterfly House. We still didn't make it out the door until 12. How does it take one child 2 1/2 hours to get ready? The butterfly house out here is amazing. It's set in a park where you can visit an historic village. We didn't have time to do that this trip, but want to go back. It's so fun to be inside with all those butterflies. I had one land on my arm and it stayed put for a couple minutes. They are wonderful little creatures...so much beauty and grace. You can walk around or just sit in one of the benches and watch them fly all around you. It is really hot and humid inside the house and after an hour, Beki had had enough and we were starving. She decided Wendy's sounded really good so we plugged in the nearest Wendy's in the GPS and drove about 15-20 minutes to find it. However, nothing but several car dealerships sat where the Wendy's was supposed to be. A little frustrated, we headed for home and ended up at a Panera.
