Hector and I are enjoying a week of together. This is the first time we have both had time off since Evan was born TWO years ago.
We were going to go out of town but flights skyrocketed and Evan’s party took over the weekend and his birthday was Monday so before we knew it… It was Wednesday and we had nothing planned. Hector has been super excited to visit the Chicago Botanical Gardens and I’ve never been so yesterday we packed a cooler and drove north… I seriously was such a happy little prego. We walked for miles and took in SO MUCH BEAUTY!!! Ugh. IT was amazing & inspiring…
These gardens really just take your breath away. I took – oh about 1,000 pictures haha. Problem is I NEED AN AUTO-FOCUS! Ugh. I really need to invest in some new gear, I probably told Hector that at least a half a dozen times on this little family trip of ours. They had AWESOME vegetable gardens, sensory gardens… Walled English gardens, Japanese gardens… Honey bees!!
They had so much to see and Evan enjoyed running around especially in the train garden. He is so fun to watch!:
He even got to see some duckies:
(waving, bye bye)
It was a spectacular day. I’ll leave you with some of my personal obsession lately, succulents & a cactus:
Today we are tackling some at home projects. Painting a bathroom and working on our basement demo. With the LO on the way we need to make sure we utlize all of the space of our home wisely. Hoping for good progress! <3
