We aren’t blessed with green thumbs… in fact we’ve had cacti and succulents in our garden wither. So when they are thriving, we like to enjoy it! Seems like twice a year butterflies come and lay eggs on our baby citrus trees. The eggs are TINY and the little caterpillars have a hard time surviving whether we leave them alone to fend for themselves on the tree leaves or take them into a butterfly ‘house’ to take care of til ready for pupa stage. She wrote about the caterpillars on our homeschooling blog at HappyFishSchool.com.
I had the pleasure of photographing the expanded Butcher Family – with their sweet baby boy Jack. After some shots in the comfort of their home we headed up the mountain to one of their favorite trails for family photos. The kids had a great time and I love their goofy having fun faces – you can see how close they are. Beautiful family – inside and out.
