Earth Day at the Arboretum

When pondering what to do today...Matt busted out with why not go to the arboretum?  We were a little curious if maybe there would be some bluebonnets on Memorial this year and figured if not, well then we had an alternative plan!  What a fun day it ended up being!  They were celebrating Earth Day today and had a whole circuit set up of activities for the kiddos to do.  We headed out on the trails, armed with our map and let the adventure begin!  I must say, I have lived in Houston forever and don't recall ever actually going before?  It was definitely fun!

At each station you had to complete a task and then you would get the coveted stamp!  Fill in all stamps...get a prize!  Woohoo!  Say prize and you have Zach's attention. We spotted squirrels, birds, butterflies, turtles and lots of friendly people walking dogs who let me dog lovin' boys love on their pups!

Here are a few pics of our fun day!  And on a side note....we got asked if the boys were twins no less than 5 or 6 times!  Guess they are starting to look alike!

 THIS is the face of one happy adventurer!
We topped off our fun afternoon in the city with a stop at the most delicious Greek place evah....Niko Niko's!!  YUM-O!!

What a great day exploring our fun city!!


  1. That is funny you said that about the twins. I was just thinking to myself in the photos that are not full body shots (hence you can't see their height), I have a really hard time telling them apart!!!! :-)
