Yesterday, we finally went to the gardens. We packed a nice lunch and ate under one of the gazebos near the pond. Yes, you heard that right, school is finally out. So yesterday, I played hooky – no school, no computer, just sunshine and me 🙂 Okay, the kids were there too, but they kept busy taking photographs of their own.
One of my little ones sadly announced that she does not like taking photos and thought I would be disappointed. She loves drawing though, so today when we go back to the gardens she will bring drawing implements with her. I’m not disappointed at all, but I would love to see her grow in her artistic endeavors.
Speaking of endeavors… my oldest daughter did finally start her own photography blog. You can find her at Chronicles of Wonder. One of her teachers suggested that she start sharing her photography as she sees great potential in her. If you have seen my photos, then you will see right away that her eye is trained differently than mine, which I think is a good thing. Pretty amazing thinking we are at the gardens on the same exact day and times, yet her view is ever so different.
Anyhoo… have to get up and get ready to go to the gardens again. Hoping to pack a nice lunch and enjoy the warmer weather – yesterday was a bit windy. I don’t expect to necessarily find a different view than yesterday, but just want to soak in as much of the outdoors as I can. Thank goodness spring is finally here (and school being out is icing on the cake)! Hope all of you have beautiful weather, wherever you may be.
