Colorado Trip Part Three!

After our fun trip to Graffiti Falls, we headed back to Justin's home, there we ate dinner and washed all of our wet clothes. We then headed up to visit Jared's brother John and his family who live in Thornton, CO (north of Denver).

The first day that we were there we went to the Butterfly Pavilion. If you are ever in the Denver area you should go here. I learned more about bugs and butterflies than I ever thought that I would. We, oh wait let me rephrase this, some of us were very lucky to be able to hold their pet tarantula Rosie. I was one of the fortunate ones who did not get to hold Rosie (let me add that I was glad). Our daughter Amber after having held Rosie, was grossing out quite a bit. She would not do anything with her hand and arm that touched the beautiful big spider, she actually held her arm away from her body. I finally asked her if she was ok, she then proceeded to tell me that she needed to wash the spider off of her hand, I was secretly laughing. Here are some pictures of the girls and their cousins. When I am finally done posting about our whole trip I will make a collage of some sort with all of the pictures from our wonderful trip.

While at the Butterfly Pavilion they had an exhibit there where the children could feel like they were the size of bugs. Yea! So here are some pictures of that exhibit.
