The Butterfly Palace was AMAZING AND SOOOO COOL! We've never seen butterflies like these! Their sizes and colors were breathtaking! Shelby got to release butterflies who just came out of their chrysalis (which we also learned that Butterflies come out of a chrysalis and Moths come out of their cocoons!)! Shelby also got to hold a blue-tongued skink (lizard)! Rhett tried to grab and squish the butterflies that landed on or near him. haha...
We had a dinner reservation at Dixie Stampede at 5:30pm and were told to arrive an hour early to experience the horses in their stalls and the pre-show. It was sooo cool! Shelby was in "horse-heaven!" The show was great, and we couldn't take pics or video even though I saw people doing it, so there's only pre-pics. The food was AMAZING AND a lot! After the show we let shelby swim in the hotel pool and she just jumped right in! Guess her lessons really stuck from last summer!! The kids were exhausted and slept great again! We ate breakfast and then headed home...we made a stop in Russellville to see Uncle Jeff and Aunt Cindy and let the kids play and eat lunch and then we stopped at Little Rock's Bass Pro. Overall, we made awesome memories and know that our summer vacation will be amazing! The kids were so great and it's soo surreal to know we are a family of 4!
