Butterflies in the city!

Yesterday we took a bus trip into NYC to visit the Butterfly exhibit at the Museum of Natural History! It was a great trip and we got to see alot of really interesting stuff! I have lived out on Long Island for 10 years, but this was my first time to the museum, and we're definitely going back later this summer! The butterfly exhibit was very nice, although not as large as The Butterfly Place in Westford, MA, which is a permanent facility. If you're ever in Northeastern MA, check out the butterflies! It's a bit off the beaten path, but well worth the trip! And if you're in NYC before the end of May, go visit the Museum and the butterflies there!

The museum is also known for it's extensive dinosaur collection, which was a real treat to see!

The T-Rex has always been one of my favorite dinosaurs, but he wouldn't have been very good at quilting....his forearms are too small to handle rotary cutters and a ruler LOL
