little friends





every day when we walk by the "caterpillar plant" i look for caterpillars- and today they were there!
i can't wait for more butterflies! i love that velzy appreciates cool little things like caterpillars and hope that both my girls will grow up to love all things nature as much as luke and i do.

Yes, great pictures. And I can always appreciate little girls who don't scream and run away at creepy crawlies! Your kids are great!

haha, steph's comment cracks me up! i have been trying to find a crownflower tree to locate some of those little critters so i can show my kids the process of changing from caterpillar to butterfly. to do the same thing you did a couple months back. they would love it! and i love your pictures!

RAD pics, and I caught a caterpillar this weekend, and I think I fed it the wrong kind of leaf. It died....

Katie said...

Awesome pictures Ashley! Thos caterpillars are so cool!

chanel said...

i think i may be too weak to be your friend....seriously GROSS! That was my first impression, and that is why you are such a way cooler mama!
They are so fat! whoa! not that them being skinnier would make it any more comforting to me. but please more pictures of insects so I can stop being jealous of your wonderful life! :)

How did you find so many! Man, you guys do the coolest stuff out there, not fair!

heidi said...

sweet. kind of reminds me of o, except he plays with worms and likes to pull them apart...he thinks it makes two worms. caterpillars to butterflies what a life...crazy.

Those Caterpillars are huge! I would freak out if they were in the palm of my hand. Love the pix.

Aubrey Jane said...

this was my favorite when I was a kid, and I still thenk they are some of the coolest looking things ever. It's so hard to resist taking them home and keeping them until they become butterflys.

We found a ginormous caterpiller in our yard today, and I thought of you. It was green and looked totally fake! My kids were obsessed with it, but it escaped before I could capture a photo...unless Eva ate it, which is possible, but really gross to think about. BUT, yes, please come over this week! Tuesday or Thursday since I work every other day...I hate that I have to, but it's what has to be done! The kids will LOVE the chickens! And probably the bookmobile too.
