After church today, we went to Hot Springs to visit Garvin Woodland Gardens. We almost didn't go because it really looked like it was going to rain. But we did and am sooooo glad we did :o) It was pretty chilly at first, but after about an hour it warmed up and the SUN came out! BEAUTIFUL day!

Pretty rose bush...and beautiful little girl :o)

Hillary Ashton did a scavenger hunt during our walk and she LOVED it :o) She had to find a bridge made of trees, a walking insect, a squirrel, a Japanese Maple tree, etc... She found everything except a jumping insect :o)

The girls ran up and down the aisle saying they had super powers...not sure if that is appropriate for a chapel...but they sure had fun :o)
