butterflies and a cool bug

I have had so many butterflies in my garden lately. They love the coneflowers. I have been trying to get one to land on my finger, but it hasn't happened yet. Maybe if I went outside without the dogs one might get brave.

As you can see, the sun is back. The ground is drying out. Time to get back to summer.






Yesterday, Jeff took the day off from work and we went up north to our local amusement park. We rode the old wooden roller coaster all day. Luckily, the line was very short. We were able to sit in the first seat of the first car for almost every ride. It is the best seat! You really get the full effect of the long drop offs. It was so much fun. We would get off, and then get right back in line to go again. We realized many people were doing the same thing, the only difference was that they were all much younger than us. Luckily, they grew bored of the ride much quicker, and would then move on (love that summer break from their ADD medication). Made the line shorter for us!
