When we were in Sioux Falls for a meeting, my mother-in-law treated the kids and me to a stop at the Sertoma Butterfly House, which she had visited previously. We entered the butterfly area through double doors designed to keep the butterflies from escaping their home. Inside, we could see many different varieties of butterflies, being careful not to step on any that might have stopped on the path. Feeding stations allowed us to watch the butterflies as they ate, and we could see various cocoons with butterflies in different stages of emergence.
Although we didn’t spend a lot of time at the butterfly house, we all enjoyed the stop, and each of us had a favorite butterfly by the time we left.
I really liked looking for butterflies.
