Arboretum Spring Fun

The family went to the Dallas Arboretum Saturday morning with donuts in hand. It was a beautiful day and the flowers were breath-taking. This is the time of year I love Dallas the most.


Jude and Liam made new friends, mooched some food off a nice Asian family and rolled down the big hill by the lake and the koi fish ponds. They had so much fun they didn't want to leave, but Liam was getting cranky.
Oh my goodness, the blossoming trees are the most amazing things ever.  The sunlight was shining through them perfectly. God  definitely had an incredible imagination and His color palette is second to none!  When I see all of this beauty, hmm, well it is humbling.

Then I see these beauties and their silliness and laugh my head off, all the while grateful for the gifts that God has entrusted to me. Liam so badly wanted to roll down the hill like his brother, but couldn't figure it out so he scooted down backwards. Oh well, it's close right?

Absolutely love it all - the flowers - the family - the perspective!

Lessons learned -- beauty of the earth, joy of family together, fun without spending. A much better "teaching experience" for the boys and they went to bed happy.
Scenery pics -- so pretty. Kids' pics -- so cute. Back side of Adam -- not so much!
