Garfield Park Conservatory

On Tuesday we went to the Garfield Park Conservatory with friends. It was such a beautiful place to let the kids roam and run and to take in the abundant plants and vibrant flowers, especially when we are dying for nicer weather that is taking its sweet time to arrive. This was a great pick-me-up and fun outing for spring break. I was surprised that it wasn't more crowded - we often had rooms to ourselves, which was pretty nice.

After a few hours inside, our kids got super sweaty from running around - it was pretty warm in some of the rooms and were sporting bright red cheeks, with the exception of little Anderson who was just cozy in his car seat.

Hooray for minivans! The convenience outweighs any un-coolness. Plus, you need to watch the "Swagger Wagon" clips on YouTube. Then you'll know how hip you are. Also, I LOVE the new picture format for your blog--way more viewable (is that a word?).

I like Garfield park conservatory pictures. I think it is best place for children to enjoy in natural sunlight and fresh atmosphere. Even it gives good fragrance of flowers too.
