Yesterday was a FREE day at the Missouri Botanical Garden to celebrate the anniversary of Henry Shaw's Birthday. When I hear the word FREE and the Botanical Garden in the same sentence I don't care how hot it is outside - we are going! Don't worry, I took the kids at 9am and only stayed for an hour. It was about 90 degrees when I left the Garden and we went straight to the Smoothie store for a nice cool beverage. This heat is a huge bummer but still enjoyed our trip the Garden. Here are a few pictures. First, the sign out front to advertise abou the Lantern Festival. Super cool. I need to head back at night.
Preston really liked the huge dragon!
This is just a cool spot near the Japanese Garden. I like the view!
No trip to the Missouri Botanical Garden would be complete without stopping to sit on the sheep/ram. Preston can now ride the big ram. So sweet.
Peyton still loved the babies.
Both kids on for a ride.
We also took a trip inside the Children's Garden to play. Here, Preston had the opportunity to plant some lettuce. He takes his gardening job very seriously.
Finally, a nice view of the rose Garden before we left. So beautiful.
