botanical garden

I had thought I would go to the botanical garden early this am, all by myself.  I imagined myself  quietly walking through the garden with my camera in hand, taking my time, or not. But two little guys caught wind of this and wanted to go too.  At first I resisted, worried that I wouldn’t get the time I needed to take pictures and chill out, but it’s rare that they want to do something like this. So water bottles and snacks were prepared.  Hats and sunscreen on, and off we went.

We actually had a splendid time. My guys were on there best behavior,despite the heat. Not one complaint. We arrived at 0830 ( would have been earlier, had they been open) and by 9 it was already 92 degrees. Didn’t stop us though.  We stayed until 10 then headed to the air conditioned gift shop and lobby for a glorious 20 minutes of cooling off.

And look! Clouds!!!  As I write this (at 1030 pm) it’s actually raining!  With lightening and thunder too. YAY!

    Yay! Water! Rain! Some cooling! The botanical gardens look so fun, the boys look good as butterflies. :0)

    We’re supposed to get thunderstorms this afternoon, but I’m hoping they hold off until tomorrow. We have our annual 4th of July outing for this afternoon/evening. Happy 4th!
