Purple Dream and Star Wars Day 2

My daily was taken outside the Magic Wings Butterfly House yesterday.

We had such a good time at The Museum of Life and Science in Durham on Saturday, that we ended up going back on Sunday too.  The kids really wanted to see one of the remote controlled droids, and we heard that they would be there on Sunday.  We weren't disappointed either, R2-C3 (think orange instead of blue R2-D2) was there.  The kids posed for pics with R2-C3 and many of the other characters from the 501st Carolina Garrison too.

Johnny and Madi were just too cute together yesterday!

We had the opportunity to watch local actor and stunt coordinator David McClutchey demonstrate and train kids on how to do fight scenes with a sword.  This video is fun.  He had a lot of spunk.  My kids wanted to do this, but time was short and the line of kids was long.  Maybe next year.


For handheld, I got lucky on this butterfly shot in the Magic Wings Butterfly House.

This set-up that they have to magnify a hornworm on a tobacco leaf is one of Johnny's favorite things at the museum.
