New Members of the Arboretum

Tim and I have been planning on joining the Arboretum for some time now, but with it being Winter we decided we would wait until Spring when we could actually use our membership. My parents decided to join us in purchasing a Family Membership and we put it to good use yesterday. Now, it wasn't a pretty day, but it was warm and we were ready to get out of the house and enjoy some fresh air. Our friend Kelli and her darling daughter Keaton joined us. It is so peaceful and pretty at the Arboretum and with the weather being overcast, we pretty much had the whole place to ourselves. And, our membership allows us to have 6 people at a time with us, under 2 years old is free. So, if you ever want to go...just give us a call!

Avery checking out the "Big Blue Fish", not orange, she said they were blue of course!

Look at all the pretty pansies and violas. This area is the trial area for different plants and flowers for this region. If you can see in the back of the pic, that's the area that didn't survive over the winter. You would think they would pull them!

Rolling down the big hill where they have the concerts on Thursdays with Daddy.

See...she can throw a fit just like the rest of them :)

I bet you didn't know that we have a pirate in the family!

Avery did not want to ride in her stroller, she just wanted to push it and push she did. All around the park except for a few times she walked the whole way. Needless to say, she took a great nap when we got home.

Kelli's daughter Keaton is such a cutie pie! She was cooing and "talking" and giving us the best gummy grins!

Avery and Keaton holding hands. Keaton is so strong, she loves to stand.

My cutie pie!
