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.
