Stardate 64588.72 - Picnic and Butterflies

On July 11, Cheryl organized a picnic for Loren and her classmates, as many of them are headed off to Kindergarten this fall. It was held in the Peter Cooper Village complex. It threatened rain for the first 30 minutes or so, but finally cleared up and the picnic commenced.

At one point the kids entered the fountain in the complex, but as that was apparently against the rules they were hustled out of it by complex security.

Nana and Kracker had given Loren a butterfly kit for Christmas, but not wanting to watch them perish in the habitat, we waited until summer to order them. Two containers of caterpillars arrived, and after about a week they built their cocoons. About a week later they hatched into butterflies and after a few days in NYC we transported them to the beach house where they were freed on July 17th. Loren wanted some pictures before we let them go by our garden, so here are some not-so-focused pictures of the 10 butterflies (they all made it)!

And finally, a picture of the girls enjoying a moment together in front of the TV.
