Last Wednesday, June  13, we drove back out to Lake Conway to spend some more time with my Grandpa and Grandma.



While the boys went fishing, the girls went for a walk.  Sarah introduced Katherine to the sweetness of honeysuckle.




This beautiful butterfly (I think it's a blue swallowtail, anybody know exactly what kind?) stopped long enough for me to snap a picture while the girls oohhhhed and aahhhed.




When the sun began to get hot, the girls headed back inside to play Clue, one of my personal favorite games.



It was a good thing we weren't depending on fish for lunch, because the guys were only able to bring home three small fish.  But Benjamin caught two of them!

Looks like an awesome day! I think this is the butterfly you took a picture of: Pipevine Swallowtail

The kids looked it up in our butterfly ID book and then I found this online:)

Here is a link about them:)
