Art at the Arb

Yesterday the girls and I went to the arboretum in a nearby town for their annual Art at the Arb, a day of flowers, art, and live music.  We always have fun there and yesterday was no exception!

The weather was perfect, sunny and warm.  The arboretum has thousands of tulips and other bulbs planted in it's gardens and Art at the Arb is supposed to coincide with their peak bloom, but the flowers don't always cooperate.  This year, most of the tulips had not yet opened.  The ones that had were spectacular!
The girls found friends from school and the neighborhood and spent much of their time playing, leaving me free to browse the arts and crafts and listen to the music.  I did insist on a small scale photo shoot, because the grounds of the Arb are too pretty to pass up!
Rachel had her face painted by an artist.  She looked amazing!

We had so much fun playing and enjoying the music, art, and food.  It was a perfect spring afternoon...
