Butterfly garden birthday gift for Paige - Time to release our butterflies!

Paige released her baby butterflies this past week. Andrea came across the idea from some friends on Facebook, and we gave Paige the gift on her birthday. The butterflies made their cocoons, emerged as butterflies, and we'd been feeding them sugar water with a pipette for a few days. They were getting restless in their little cage, pooping red goo, and we decided it was time to release them to the wild. Paige reluctantly took them out front and I took some pics and a video while she released them.

Most of the butterflies didn't go too far and seemed content to sample the flowers out front while we admired them.
