Callaway Gardens

The weekend before Christmas, Memaw and Paw Paw took the entire Butler clan to Callaway Gardens for the weekend. We were excited to go since it had been around 7 years since we had all been on vacation together. We had so much fun, and as usual, our Butler "three" brought some drama. I'll just leave it with two silly 6 year old girls locking one of the bedroom suites and a skillful Michael opening the door with a good bang of the door and then a credit card....makes me wonder how he knew how to do that?!?! Then a nerve wrenching experience with one three year old little boy who would not go to the bathroom before we boarded the hour long trolley ride (yes, I said HOUR) to see the lights. It included about 15 minutes of whaling crying, several shouts of "my wee wee hurts" and then a HUGE puddle of wetness on a very cold night. It would have broken your heart to see the pitiful site after the accident. Needless to say, it is always adventurous when traveling with our crew!

Daniel and Jack LOVE Nutcrackers! They were so excited to see this big guy!
(Notice where Jack's hand is....a good indicator of the drama about to unfold on the trolley ride)

The next day we went to the butterfly observatory.

It was very humid, so my camera kept fogging up.

Daniel loved looking at all the butterflies!
