(I know it will be that year because her dad has dictated that she will start to date at 25 years old, meet "the one" at 27, date for two years, have a one-year engagement, and then she will marry at 30. Just ask him. Tim has it all figured out. Nevermind that her mom married him at (barely) 21. Or that we had three kids by 30. He *thinks* he has a plan. So far, she is on board--because she doesn't have a complete grasp of what it all means, she'll do anything to make her daddy happy, and she truly thinks she is going to marry Caleb and live in her excessively pink and girly bedroom forever. He has the boys convinced to help enforce said plan. One of them even has plans to become a po-po like his Daddy and live in the basement near the big freezer full of food.)
She loves the Conservatory (which she still calls the "Conservatoria") with the Palm House being her favorite room. The boys like it, too. Lots of unique and beautiful plants and glass sculptures. Lots of interesting bugs. And some beautiful indoor and outdoor gardens.
One of the days Tim was in charge of spring break activities, he took them to the Conservatoria. To check out the butterflies. And the gardens. And (of course) the Palm House.
|Ready or not, here I come!|
|The fountain in the Palm House.|
|I know my kids.|
I know their dad.
I can only imagine what he said to elicit these faces.
|The fountain in the middle of the Palm House.|
|One of the many bridges.|
|I don't even know what to say.|
What would your caption be?
|Sometimes, I just can't get over how gorgeous she is.|
|Not sure if they find Tim funny.|
Or each other.
Or all of the above.
And because he took 393 photos, Tim can't remember what was so funny.
|Japanese Koi Pond.|
With floating Chihuly sculptures.
|The butterfly hatchery.|
Can you guess which child is most excited?
The Wildlife Biologist, perhaps?
|Totally going to get him a modeling contract.|
