Sorry this post is a little late.  The girls decided not to settle until 1.30 last night as a result a tired Mummy thought that bed was a fitting option as we had had a lovely day out and it was needed.  As a result I am writing the post now and will write today's a little later on.

We spent the day at the butterfly house in Sheffield.  It is a great place with lots for children of all ages to see and do.  What makes it really special for us is that they always decorate the whole place so nice dependant on the time of year.  We happen to go quite a lot as both girls really love it.  At Halloween there were skeletons and ghosts, lots of flags for the Queens jubilee but my favourite time of year to go is at Christmas for the Christmas tree.

I would love to be able to decorate my tree like it.  My eldest was mesmerised by it and we had to keep stopping to look so she could sit under it.  Once we had managed to get her to leave the tree we went into the butterfly house where there is a huge variety of animals.  Its also lovely and warm in there so gave us a chance to warm back up.

I love watching the ants busy carrying leaves and also trying to find the two iguanas that live in there.  They are usually up in the roof.  My daughters like to watch the birds and butterflies fly past.  Once thoroughly warmed back up again we ventured outside to see the farm animals and the Meerkats.


I really love the variety of animals that they have.  Every time we go there seems to be something new.  To finish our day I always let my girls have a play in the playground that's there.

It really was a lovely day out and we shall be going again soon.  There is so much for the girls to do and so much more as they get older too.

This day I love Butterflies.
