last day of school

We celebrated the last day of school with a little more fanfare than usual this year. In the morning Charlie found this butterfly in the backyard. We think it might have been injured or something. We left it alone after we took the pictures and it disappeared after a while. We hope it recovered and flew away.
After picking the boys up from school we went to see Kung Fu Panda 2. We had decided that was the one movie of the year that was theater worthy for the kids.
Then later that night the boys requested to "camp" in the backyard. Ryan set up the tent and even started a fire in the fireplace so we could roast marshmallows for smores. Somehow I was the lucky parent who got to sleep outside with them. I think they all slept better than I did.
But before we settled down in our sleeping bags, we played around with some dry ice. We added soap bubbles to it and it kept us entertained for quite a while. It is fascinating stuff.

After being wow'd by this trick at Amanda's, we bought some more ice to show our friends who came over on the 4th. They all loved it!!
