I love the Arboretum! Today was a beautiful day to spend there. We packed a picnic lunch and wagon.

The kids enjoyed looking at the koi pond while standing on the bridge.

I couldn't resist getting some photos of the kids on the same wall where their pictures were taken over a year ago. They've grown since then!

There are beautiful "Storybook adaptations" scattered around the park. Each tries to capture the essence of a famous book. I did not photograph all of them, not even close, but here are a few.


And there was the good old "Texas Town" in which my children love to play. They played here for a solid half hour while I read a book in the shade.

We enjoyed the day so much that we bought a family membership so we can return many times over the next year. It will be especially nice this fall and spring. Though it really wasn't that hot today.

Love all the photos. Kids look like they had fun and glad it wasn't too hot. I have not seen those storybook sections there. Will have to meet you there sometime.
