Mom called me yesterday to tell me she'd seen a Monarch chrysalis in the Children's Garden while she was out there weeding and watering. It was hanging from the kale and was quite hidden, so she was fortunate to notice it. I wanted to run right down there and see it immediately, but knew we were going there today, so I exercised my patience.

Kara and Adam came down today and we all went together to Van Wert to eat lunch at Sonic. It's one of my favorite fast food places, not only because they have great burgers, but they have those Cream Slushes that are The Greatest Drinks EVER. I always get strawberry.
After stopping at Mom and Dad's we all headed out the Children's Garden. It was Adam's first visit and Mom gave him the tour, telling him of all that was there and what was yet to come. She showed us the chrysalis and it was just beautiful.
After we got home, we worked on getting things moved back into the basement after the flood mess. It feels like this won't ever be done, but I have to keep remembering, "Inch by inch, it's a cinch..."
I wonder if the Monarchs feel like that when they are making their trip to Mexico.
