Butterfly hunting

Yesterday, the kids and I went on a butterfly hunt / hike.  They literally wanted to stay for hours....which we did.
 They came prepared with nets and butterfly cages.
Elise is starting to pose whenever she sees the camera aimed at her!  At least I caught a few non-posing shots of our princess / tomboy.

Then there is our snake hunter....who can find every snake out there.
 Check out the water snake that he caught.
 At the end of our day, Braden happily told me that this was the best day ever!  Music to my ears!!  

It was a great day and to prove it,  I went to bed before all of them. 
We ended up catching 5 butterflies and named them, but at the end of the day, the butterflies were allowed to be returned to their mamas.
