"The Butterfly Park"

The plan was to go  with some friends to the Butterfly Park in Huntington, the kids were really excited. But when we got there it was having some work done on it and was closed. Luke was wondering what was going on so I said," We went to the wrong place, the Butterfly Park is in another place. We'll go over there now" The little white lies we tell our kids. Crisis was averted and he happily replied, "OK Mama, lets drive there" When we pulled up to a park which was close by they both ran out of the car cheering for the Butterfly Park!!!! 
We had a great time. I don't know why we don't go to the park more often. I think we got so spoiled with all of the awesome, new parks in Chicago that its hard to be satisfied with the older, dirtier ones around our house. The kids are happy with any park, I need to just bite the bullet and walk down the street to the old park in my neighborhood. I am committed to doing it more often.

Luke and Paige playing in the dirt. Obviously Luke thinks she is pretty awesome.

The first take she fell head over feet and kind of rolled down. She got angry at the slide but thought she'd give it another chance to do its job.

Lukie and Sam. They love eachother.

My beautiful boy

He was so happy they had a slide and pretty much went down it the entire time.

Nice pics. I am not sure if we are related. My husband is the son of LeRoy and Mary Wirthlin. They have 17 children, so you would have definitly heard something about their family I am sure. John's dad is first cousins with Elder Wirthlin if you are related on that side. It is a small world...
