Before our trip to Kansas, to visit Maile's Marmee and Papa, Maile and I spent an afternoon at Littleton's Hudson Gardens with our friends Annie and Silas. Among other botanic adventures, we toured the beautiful dahlia plots. Baby Girl and Si Guy also thought the Thomas the Train setup was pretty cool; they really, really wanted to touch all the "choo-choos" and "toot toots." ;)
The last time I was at a botanic garden, Maile was just a wink in God's eye -- I wasn't even pregnant yet. So, it was fun to have her running around this place. Remembering my last garden trip, from our time living in the Big City a couple of years ago, apparently I'm making a habit of visits on unseasonably warm (read: HOT!) days. I guess I'm a summer girl, through and through!
