The Dallas Arboretum

Today my mom and I took the kids to the Dallas Arboretum.

This place is what I envision heaven to look like.   It’s breathtaking.

My kids had to suffer as my mom and I took picture after picture of all of the beautiful things to see.

I love this idea for container gardening- you know for when I have a spare canoe hanging around.

The kids loved the pioneer village- especially the sod house and the covered wagon.

I had envisioned getting a fabulous picture of me with the kids and of the kids together.   Here’s what I got:

At least the other pictures turned out well.

The last picture was after about  fifty tries.   When Baby #1 snapped   at Baby #3 to “LOOK AT THE CAMERA ALREADY” I figured that my perfect picture wasn’t meant to be.   It was still totally worth it to take in God’s glorious creation.

When Candace isn’t trying to get the perfect picture of her kids she blogs at Mama Mia.
