We released the butterflies. Tessa was a little sad at first but then realized they would be happy flying around outside. She requestedto wear her butterfly shirt too. We probably should have waited for a less windy day so they would have flown around the backyard more. 

Thanks again to Aunt Polly and Uncle Kurt for a great gift!
