Saturday Outing

Today, we went to Huntington Botanical Gardens. Don't worry...Tedd pushed me in a wheelchair while Po Po pushed JP!

We visited the new Chinese Garden, called Liu Fang Yuan, meaning flowing fragrance. There, we took a break at the tea room where for a whopping $8.50 you can get three little pieces of dim sum. Did you know that all of the beautiful stones and wood used in the garden were flown in from China? We think maybe the dim sum was flown from China too, judging from the price!

We also walked through the Rose Garden which was in full bloom and smelled just heavenly.

But the best stop of all was the Children's Garden where JP belly laughed at the jumping fountains, called marble jets.

It warmed up in the afternoon, so we headed home for naps, but not before a stop at the gift shop where Po Po bought JP a couple of fun books and fabulous bookends shaped like Peter Rabbit - a gift he'll be able to pass on to his children some day.
