Good morning. Thank you all for your supportive comments on the last post. Just a point of clarification...when I say this is the new "fat panda." I simply meant to illustrate how the perspective can change over time. While 160 seemed like a great feat a few months ago, it simply is not good enough anymore. Now on to the weekend.
This was Hubby's birthday weekend and in true family man style, it was spent with me and the girls just doing family stuff. I know, I know...not exactly "epic." Anywhoo...On Saturday we went to see The Lorax. Pretty good film. I'm not real sure why it's rated PG instead of G as there wasn't anything inappropriate in it for my girls (6 and 4), although I know some of the undertones about capitalism was missed on them. Anyway...I'd recommend it for anyone looking for a good kids' flick. My girls liked it and there was lots of singing and music which always helps move kids' movies along.
Sunday, we spent the morning at the Phoenix Botanical Garden. They have a butterfly exhibit there that's pretty cool. We all had at least one land on us and my oldest had 3 at one time! We found out later it was because she was wearing white. Apparently, white and yellow are the colors to attract butterflies. We'll probably see this exhibit once more (we have season passes to the Garden) before Butterfly Season ends, so we'll know what colors to wear for next time. Here are some pics:

|She was good and held very still for them. Youngest is a little mad that she hadn't had one land on her yet. LOL|
|Just getting acquainted|
|My hand on my youngest' belly...it tickled.|
|Finally! Lori got one on her leg...we waited a LONG time for one to land on her.|
