Here are some pictures we took while on vacation at the Minnesota Zoo last summer. The Butterfly Garden was a really nice place to see a lot of different butterflies. I often think of people who have passed on when I see butterflies. They are a symbol of transformation, resurrection and celebration.

Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. ~Nathaniel Hawthorne
We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty. ~Maya Angelou
If nothing ever changed, there would be no butterflies. ~Author Unknown
What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly. ~Richard Bach
