Here are some shots my mom took. It was hard for me to do, but I left my camera at home. Stay tuned for the professional shots later this week!
|getting all gussied up. Ellie was adamant about her shoe choice!|
Here's a quick compilation of a few seconds of video of us trying to get a shot of us all walking together...
|triplet refueling after all that running around|
|we also found a field of dandelions behind the arboretum|
After a while we headed back into the garden...
|beautiful double tulips|
|this was way too tempting & I think 2 or 3 tulips bit the dust during our time here!|
|Avery with her "will anyone notice if I rip off just one petal?!" look...|
|I love that they have these little watering cans for kiddos to use...|
|they LOVE filling them with water|
|and watering the flowers...|
At this point they were already wet so I figured "what the heck, let's go wade in the water too!"
|checking out the little cork boats they have for kids to play with|
(have I mentioned how much I LOVE this children's garden?!)
|more fun with boats|
|yup, that happened! good thing we waited til the end!|
After all that fun in the water we stripped everyone down & changed clothes. We debated about which outfits to have them in for pictures and now that I look at their coloring in the candid shots I'm not sure we made the right choice, but their little black & white outfits are so cute it was hard to decide! Oh well, I'm sure we'll get some great shots anyway...
|getting dirty in the sandbox in the cave|
(Isaiah would probably stay here for hours)
|Grandpa & Isaiah headed out to find a spot for lunch round two|
And one last shot of us all packed up and headed home...
Can't wait to share Emily's pics with you soon!!!
