Saturday Critters ~ 156 ~

This past week, during our visit to Hershey, Pa.
we visited the brand new
Butterfly Atrium at The Hershey Gardens
Hershey Gardens has always had a butterfly house, 
but this brand new atrium is climate controlled and open year round.
Don't get too excited, although there were a lot of butterflies,
I did not get many good pictures.
Upon entry to the atrium, the hostess told us it was warm inside, 
that we "may" want to remove our jackets - not that I was wearing one...
she said it was about 85 degrees inside, for the comfort of the butterflies.
Well one thing I can tell you straight up, is that I never want to be a butterfly.
The place felt like it was 120 degrees inside, 
my camera completely fogged, as I crawled around 
- dying -
constantly reminding myself of my love for butterflies.







This next Butterfly was in constant motion...









The Gift Shop was beautiful.
I picked up a "Butterfly Kisses" tee-shirt and a Christmas Tree soap dispenser,
because lets face it, we all need a Christmas Tree hand soap dispenser.

The Sweetest Place on Earth

The hubs and I hopped aboard our 4 - wheel drive sleigh, for a quick road trip to Hershey, Pa.
It is, as always, on the Winter Bucket List and we did not get to cross this off last year.
- we love this place -
One of us more than the other, because if I am to be truthful,
my husband is addicted to chocolate.
It's truer than true - he eats the stuff morning, noon and night.
And he is a "sneaky" eater of chocolate.
 When he knows he's had too much, he sneaks some...
somehow thinking if no one see's him eat it, well it somehow doesn't count!

The smell of chocolate is everywhere...



Welcome to Santa's House - made entirely of candy!!








We had such a good time - more to come!!
