Callaway Gardens

Today we drove two hours southwest to Pine Mountain, Georgia, to go to Callaway Gardens. Elyse has been every interested in butterflies lately, and she was very excited about visiting the Day Butterfly Center, and there are lots of other good things to see there too.

Here's Elyse, dreaming about butterflies before we went into the butterfly environment:

Callaway Gardens is a great place to visit, and only about 110 miles away from us--closer than Rock City! We'll be going back again soon.
