Several weeks ago… during a brief period in-between all the sickness we had in December, we made it to the Gardenland Express at the Missouri Botanical Garden. We take the kids here every year to see the electric trains, plants, flowers and trees and they always enjoy it. It is always hard to get a decent photo in here of the kids without them being washed out, especially if the sun is shining through the glass ceiling.
See the watermelon patch?
I always bring my expensive camera every year, so that I can take photos of the botany. This is one of my favorite photos I took, I just love the composition of it.
Aren’t the little greenhouses in the bed of this train cute?
Nathan got a camera for Christmas from Grandma and here he is taking some photos.
Pink poinsettias are my favorite!
I hope we continue this tradition as a family for many more years to come! I do miss the years when Nathan was smaller and he was in LOVE with electric trains… we still have a couple of electric train tables set up downstairs from when he was crushing on them.
Now, are you ready for this weeks meal plan?
This week I actually have a couple of photos I took of our dinners, I am going to try to be better about taking some photos each week. I always like Meal Plans better when I can see a photo and I would rather provide one of my own, so you can see what it looks like in my kitchen.
