May 2016 in Pictures: Fishing, Butterflies, & Kittens!

Here is my May 2016 in pictures post, watch out I am catching up!  Just like in April a lot of fishing occurred.  It is a good thing that we are surrounded by water!  We also had new additions to our family and even fostered a few critters until they could be released back into the wild.  Here is our May 2016 in pictures….

The girls have fallen in love with ballet.  They take classes at such a neat place, you never know what you will find there.  On this day it was a baby goat.

We all had a blast at a local fairy festival.  We spent the morning making fairy gardens, looking at amazing fairy gardens, and crafting with friends.  This day needs it’s very own post!

Speaking of the garden….

There are several milkweed plants growing in our garden for the monarchs.  One morning while pulling weeds I noticed a few wasps on my milkweed.  I came in and read a bit and realized that the paper wasps were eating my monarch babies!  I am all for the food chain but I wanted a few monarchs to have a chance at survival.

I cut several leaves that had eggs on them.  I also shared with friends, I mean B is for butterfly is great for learning at home!

It was amazing how tiny the caterpillars could be!  Those dots are dots of sand & dirt on the leaf….

In May we went on a super cool field trip to our county’s CSI center.  We all learned a bunch on this field trip.  Audrey enjoyed finding fingerprints in the CSI van.

After a day of fishing it is always fun to jump into the pool to wash off and have fun.
