Butterfly Palace Branson MO

Hey Neighbors!

I am so excited to share this one with you.  While on our 30th Anniversary trip we were able to visit Butterfly Palace.  Have any of my neighbors ever visited?  The butterflies are simply gorgeous!  They have over 1,000 butterflies, along with a few birds, ladybugs and a turtle.  Wait until you see the pictures and videos.

The Gift Shop Area

Aren't they beautiful!

Butterfly Palace is located in Branson MO and is open year round.  For the price of admission you can spend the whole day going through their maze, climbing the coconut tree, wandering with the butterflies, or exploring in their Science Center.  And of course you can pick up a gift from their shop before you leave. Also, if you purchase a day ticket after 3:00 pm, you can come back the next day for free!

 You enter their rainforest, where the butterflies are, through a series of 3 doors.  It is very important to keep the butterflies contained.  You will enter a large room filled with palms, orchids and exotic plants.  It is gorgeous.  Children can wear the pith helmets provided while they explore with kid-sized binoculars.  The butterflies are everywhere and you do need to be careful and watch where you step.  There are benches to sit on and relax while you watch the butterflies.  They are often in motion and occasionally one will land on you!  They have nearly 200 species that they import weekly from around the world.  You will definitely want to bring your camera along.

Next you might want to try the Emerald Forest Mirror Maze.  I have a confession to make here.  I only made it part way before I felt weird and had to leave.  My husband said I was claustrophobic.  I don't know if that was it or not, but many families and children were having a great time.  My daughter (11 years old) has been there before and she thought it was great!  Oh well!

I personally found their Science Center interesting.  They had lizards, frogs, salamanders and such.  And there was this really neat virtual reality desk where you could dissect a frog. Very neat!  Oh!  I forgot to mention the giant cockroaches!  Now, I lived quite a bit of my life in Florida and have had to deal with Palmetto bugs and such, but nothing that was ever this large.  And they are ugly! It took us several minutes of searching to find the poison dart frogs.  You would think with their bright colors it would have been easy, but it wasn't.
Find the blue poison dart frog!
Now do you see the yellow one?

Since it was just my husband and I this trip, we did not attempt the coconut tree climb.  This is one for children.  I did wander through the Banyan maze just for a minute or two to see what it was like.  Not easy!

So if any of you are planning a trip to the Branson area, be sure to add the Butterfly Palace to your list of attractions to visit.  You will be glad you did!  Adults are $18.95, Children 4-12 are $9.95, 3 and under are free.  Seniors (55+) are $16.95.  Be sure to "Like" their Facebook page!

Butterfly Place is giving one neighbor 2 adult passes. Hurry up and enter soon!

Just leaving a comment for another giveaway not entering

There is butterfly world here in Coconut Creek, FL...i wqs not aware that more than one existed. I have never been there, and probably wont go because I dont like butterflies. Yeah, not a fan of bugs, and they fall into the "bug"
category for me. I dont like them because they can just fly and land on you.

It looks like a wonderful place for those that like bugs and butterflies though.
I saw the Blue Mountain Swallow Tail! Its been almost 2 years since we's a bit pricey! Would love to win free tickets! Thanks!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
