Steve and Katherine spent the day at an Odyssey of the Mind tournament, so Rachel and I had a day for just the two of us. Rae's choices of activities for the day were simple: shopping for spring clothes, eating Chinese food for lunch, and going to the botanical gardens. It was 70 degrees outside and spring is in the air, so this was a perfect list!
Rachel is not particularly interested in the plants or flowers at the botanical gardens, and she is pretty much oblivious to the beautifully planned garden architecture, but she adores the Children's Garden. Even without all the fountains and water features that are running in the summer it is a terrific place to play. And play she did!
