We keep up with Amy via her blog. But to have her here- up close and personal was a real treat!
And as fate would have it Krohn's Conservatory just started their Butterfly Exhibit. So after lunch at the Half Day Cafe we were off! And we were so, so, so glad we did! This exhibit was their Japanese Butterfly exhibit and they have two more planned each lasting about 4 weeks, so we plan to go again later in May and maybe again in June. So here are some of the photos of those delicate little insects.
I have to say I loved watching Don and Amy photograph the butterflies almost as much as I loved watching the butterflies!
I think I might call Amy the "butterfly whisperer"!Or maybe not?????
But what a great time...
And then we made a stop by the Ohio River. Now it might not be the Bay- But I never tire of stopping to look out over this mighty river!
And of course there was a family dinner complete with Sarah and our wonderful GRANDS!
And might I rather modestly mention I made the MOST INCREDIBLE RHUBARB PIE! I do have to admit that I think this rhubarb pie was probably the best pie that Max has ever made. I know, it doesn't have any chocolate in it for those of you who have that preference, but the crust was perfect and the fresh rhubarb was absolutely wonderful.
Come again Amy! We're missing you already!
