Botanical Garden Monday

Today's weather was finally a change from the hot and steamy we've been experiencing lately. We woke up to temps in the low seventies, so Parker and I jumped at the chance and spent the morning at the Huntsville Botanical Garden. We have a family season pass, but really it gets the most use in the spring and the fall. Today's weather, however, has me jonesing for chilly fall mornings and power walks along the property...

As a last-minute thought, I grabbed our SLR (the Canon 5D Mark II, the same make and model Duchess Kate shoots with as well!) fitted with the awesome lens Max gifted me for my birthday last year. 

I had fun snapping the butterflies in the butterfly house...

While Parker's favorites include the Children's Garden...

The pond...

And the many fountains...

Mornings with my little man are the best. 

We ended our outing with some soccer...

And said good-bye to the garden's model train.

We'll be seeing more of you come fall, Botanical Garden!
