Wings of Wonder

How could I have lived here for 30 years and never heard of this place before? Rae and I took the kids to the "Wings of Wonder" in Independence today. I just heard about this place earlier this year and just this week I found out that it will be closing in a few weeks when the owners retire. They have a huge indoor butterfly sanctuary with hundreds of different butterflies in a tropical environment. The kids didn't know what to think when the butterflies tried to land on them. They also had a small reptile room with snakes, frogs, and iguana. Outside they had fun garden/play area perfect for our picnic lunch. It was the perfect thing to do on a sunny spring day. I'm so glad we made it before they closed the place.
