my friend stephanie wrote about her trip to the tea garden earlier this week. it planted a little seed of an idea which grew into this outing.
so, come take a walk with us. . .
looking for japan house
pink petals were fluttering down on our heads from this tree. it was storybook-like.
the tea garden
hopping from stone to stone
the winding path. luca was looking for a good picnic spot. it did not qualify if we could see cars. we needed "alone time." :)
barefoot in the grass
loves that thumb
my three little harts
we ate a yummy picnic outside the arboretum and relaxed in the freakishly warm 80 degree april weather. at the end of the trip, luca remarked
we didn't even fuss at all today!he was right! we had such a sweet time.
i highly recommend a visit to the tea garden and neighboring arboretum. quick practical note - bring change for the parking meters!
i want to say thank you so much for all of the wonderfully encouraging comments on that post from wednesday night. i felt loved by y'all.
