In the gardens

Today was a rare treat. We made the pilgrimage over to the Chicago Botanic Gardens--my true happy place. I take the peanut there frequently to let her run around and burn off some energy, but trying to take pictures while keeping an eye on her is a total challenge. Today we went as a complete family so I was able to do my thing knowing that Tim would wrangle the wee one. I'm just simply not good enough of a writer to explain in words what this place means to me. All I can say is that it is my own personal slice of heaven, breathtaking views at every angle. Guess I'll let the photos do the talking. It was a perfect morning: Gate in the garden Pond Allium Zinnia Swans Fruit Peanut on the path Peanut in the stroller

  2. Amazing photos today. I love how the first one is a door letting you enter the gardens.


I'm excited to hear what you have to say. Just remember the rules of the playground and play nice!
