Butterfly Release

Our local Visiting Nurses Association hosts a butterfly release each year to honor loved ones who have passed on. You can purchase a butterfly to release in honor of a loved one, and they have a special ceremony for the event.

My mom donated money for butterflies in honor of my grandparents this year, so we packed up the twins and Big Girl for the event at our local public golf course. (In case anyone is interested in this style of event, the butterflies came from Swallowtail Farms.) The program included remarks by a pastor, music, a raffle of a butterfly bush and a butterfly bracelet, refreshments, and the release.

The Monarch butterflies were so beautiful, and looked very healthy. Some of them stayed around for quite a while in the field to visit or linger. The whole event was very beautiful, so I will just let the pictures do the storytelling!
