Chasing And Catching The Butterflies ( Momimhar posted on May 24th, 2013 )

We were exploring the outdoors this evening.  Because the summer season is nearly approaching, the days are getting longer and the nights are getting shorter here in the US.  So we can extend our outdoor activities until eight o’clock in the evening if we like.

I had a big day last Saturday.  I was with my friends earlier to witness the Asian Festival in Dallas.  After a nice nap, my dear husband and darling daughter wanted to go see the butterflies in the backyard.  There were lots of them enjoying the nectar of the flowers of the Wax Leaf Ligustrum bushes.  The little girl enjoyed chasing the butterflies.  She loves them.  She wanted to catch some and she did.  But she let them go after saying ‘hi’.  As she grows, our little princess gets more and more interested with nature and the outdoors.

It’s really nice to have a space in the backyard where our little one can ran around and explore.  We enjoy living in the country.  Our backyard has a big space that I am thinking of buying an outdoor playground for her.  It is kinda pricey, I know.  I have to talk to my dear husband about it.  Anyway,  the little one had so much fun chasing and catching butterflies this evening.  I think, if I haven’t lost count, she caught 11 butterflies.

“Hello butterfly!”. “It tickles!”

Chasing butterflies is one of her hobby.  I hope that someday, like the butterflies, she will chase her dreams and catch them one by one without trouble.
