Garrett's field trip

I went on a field trip with my son Garrett a couple of weeks ago. It was at The Audubon Insectarium in New Orleans. He was so excited that I was able to go with him. We rode a charter bus and after we parked we had to walk to the IMAX Theater where we watched a 3-D movie about dinosaurs. It was Garrett's first 3D movie and he was so fascinated! He loved wearing the glasses and he kept reaching out to grab the dinosaurs.

I took these as we were walking in New Orleans. Garrett loved the trolley car.


I think that this was a casino. I love all of the palm trees.



Pretty trees and the wind was blowing! Made me want to go to an island!




This was at the entrance to the Insectarium. Isn't it pretty?





This was taken in the butterfly gardens. It was so pretty in there. We loved all of the butterflies. There were tons of them. This is a picture of Garrett's little friend holding a butterfly. They have been studying about insects in their CLUE class.






This is my little man trying to touch a butterfly. A huge one...about as big as my palm few in my face and scared me! I'm not too good with bugs. Butterflies are o.k. though.







He was trying to get one to land on his finger here.








These are beautiful.









Garrett sitting on a huge worm!










Garrett pointing out his favorite butterfly.










We had a picnic outside and afterwards he wanted to throw his breadcrumbs to the birds. He had so much fun doing that!













On the prowl for more scraps to feed the birds.













What a fun time we had!














I would love to take him on a boat ride one day. He would love it!
The best part of the trip to me was something Garrett said to me on the way there. He leaned over on me in the seat and told me that his best part was me coming on his trip with him. It melted my heart. We will always remember these times.

Hi there Lee,

My Tristan just turned 6 last month, but let me tell you, I get teary eyed just watching him grow and become a little big man everyday. I just love watching how the simple things make them happy.

Garrett is adorable and keep sharing.

Toodles.
