Best Laid Plans of Butterflies & Penguins

Originally we had planned to visit the Butterflies Go Free event at the Montreal Botanical Gardens, but after being told that we'd had to stand in line for 3 hours (with 3 children under four, two pregnant ladies and my mom) we thought better of it.

Not wanting to waste a Sunday morning and all the work it took to get everyone out of the house, in the van and to the east end, we drove around the block to the Montreal Biodome.

It was lots of fun seeing all the animals in their (artificial) natural habitats. And who doesn't like penguins.

Coincidently this outing impressed on me yet another reason why I have to start taking the boys to church. There was a class from a private girls school / convert (I'm guessing) being chaperoned by a few nuns. One of the nuns offered to take a family photo of us. After I thanked her and she walked away Ethan said that she was the Witch of the Waste from Howl's Moving Castle. From the mouths of babes.
