Will heaven be like a butterfly garden?

This past Saturday we ventured to the Minnesota State Fair along with 220,000 of our closest friends. It was very spare of the moment and the kids had no idea what to anticipate. The last time we went, we went with a double stroller and a 1, 2 and 4 year old. We had a blast. We ate a variety of things from gluten free french fries (yum!), porkchop on a stick (another yum), nachos (mine are MUCH better) and mini donuts for the non-gluten free of the family. We saw a few animal exhibits, a parade and a really fun horse show.

But the most favorite event of all for all of us (with the exception of Isaiah who really disliked it :) was the Butterfly House. It was amazing! I've never seen anything like it. We each paid $3 to get in and as Isaac said, it was the best $3 ever spent. It was a little piece of heaven. You could stay for as long as you like and butterflies came and landed on you constantly. Each butterfly was so beautifully designed. They would land softly and stay for a long time. At one point, both Isabel and Isaac had about 12-15 butterflies on them. It was so beautiful.

Thank you Lord, for creating butterflies! What a beautiful gift.

One of these days I need to get to the state fair, I can't believe I've never been. Well, not since I was too small to remember.
It sounds like you guys had a great time!
Have you ever been in the butterfly room at the zoo? That is wonderful. It's in a greenhouse, so they are all in a more natural habitat. They fly around and land on you and things though, it's pretty cool.
