these might be my favorite batch of photos ever. haha! i just cannot get enough of spring this year and all the insane colors and blossoms outside. but i am probably biased since i don’t experience allergies the way others do during this season (i am sorry, josh!). we spent last saturday morning at the new york botanical garden in honor of earth day. we were also able to see several of chihuly’s hand-blown glass sculptures that just went on exhibit in the gardens which were a beautiful contrast (and complement ) to the nature around them.
a few (okay, more than a few!) photos from our morning at the gardens!
those lashes on my samson get me every single day.
tulips are one of my all time favorite flowers (along with sunflowers!). growing up, my mom always had countless tulips spread across her flower gardens in the front yard so they have always been a favorite. fun side note: i didn’t want to hold a wedding flower bouquet when i was married, but wanted to just hold a few loose white tulips tied together with a ribbon. they barely survived the heat of the day and i ended up having to switch them out with white roses by the end of the evening since they were a wilted mess, but they made it into the pictures of josh and me in the beginning of the day and i still love my tulips like none other.)
probably my favorite blown glass sculpture of the day…
in celebration of earth day, the botanical garden had a few fun activities on the grounds for the kids. we made some streamers with ribbons while we were there.
also spent a good long portion of the morning watching some gorgeous fish in the pond. i think they are koi fish? (thanks to all of you who told me what kind they were on direct message when i asked on insta stories.)
please note conrad resting his face as he watched the fish! he is so funny sometimes!
how crazy insane is the mouth! wild.
eleanor is working hard on finding ways to smile that show her lost tooth! haha! she is so funny about wanting to make sure you can see it! also, i feel like it was a major parenting milestone for us to witness a first lost tooth! (it happened when we were in england the week before last!)
thankful for this beautiful earth and the chance we have to celebrate her. have a wonderful week, you guys!
