Over Mother’s Day weekend, we met Ryan’s family on the property near our farm for a little grill-out at the cabin. This little plot of land is truly amazing.
While we were there, I spotted my first Monarch butterfly of the year. I was so excited I started pointing and yelling, nobody understood what I was pointing at. Ha!
I logged my sighting on both the North American Butterfly Association’s website and Journey North’s website. On Journey North, you can see your dot on the map showing their migration. At the time, I think my dot was the fourth dot in Iowa. View the updated map here.
I encourage you to report your sightings as well!
After lunch Ryan’s dad and I went to check on some nearby cows. Several were just born and a few more are in the way. They are so cute!
