Today we journeyed to Olbrich Botanical Gardens for a little adventure. The rain let up just for us, and we arrived there with the sunny sky above. As we pulled into the parking lot, eldest boy read the sign, "Olbrich Botanical Gardens."
Second boy said, "Botanical what? Aww, man, what is this place?" (yes, he's been here before many times, but it has never seemed more than a nice place to walk and he has never been atune enough to remember its name)
Eldest says, "It's a plant museum. Don't worry it'll be fun. We'll walk around and see all the plants, like a museum, only for plants."
At this point Owl (boy #3) pipes up, "No, it's like a zoo. It's a plant zoo." We all laugh and agree wholeheartedly and it's good to start our adventure with a smile.
So many watery places....so many little spots of beauty....
My little men.
Oh, and let me end by telling you that J took us all out for lunch at a place called "Daisy's cafe and cupcakery". Yeah. It was awesome. I enjoyed the most amazing sandwich ever which involved breaded eggplant and edamame hummus followed by a mocha cupcake that was amazing. I shared with little hen and he just kept saying, "hmmm, mama this is delicious!" It really was. The whole day. Delicious.
