Birthdays and Butterflies

Hugo is 3!

We celebrated by going to the Penang Butterfly Farm because some weeks ago I promised him we’d see butterflies in Malaysia.

Going against tradition, Hugo gave me a gift.

He reached as high as he could in the trees to pluck the perfect butterfly

And put it in my hand.

Large butterflies have creepy feeling spindly legs

Strictly speaking, you’re not supposed to go around plucking the butterflies from the trees. But don’t worry.

It flew away immediately

We also had some chocolate cake and opened presents.

I hope he can remember something of this trip and that this marks the first of many grand adventures in his lifetime.

Happy birthday to my best boy!
