The day after my birthday my mom, Chandra and I went to the Botanical Gardens with my sisters Kristin and Sharon and Sharon's kids. When we got there stop number one was to take a picture around the birthday cake outside the entrance. This year is the 250th anniversary of the founding of St. Louis, so to honor the founding there are 250 birthday cakes scattered around the city uniquely painted by different artists to represent the location they are at.
|It was awfully breezy, as you can tell by my windblown hair!|
Inside the entrance there was this cool orchid made out of Legos (there is a special Lego exhibit going on right now). I also had to get a picture of this blown glass thing that hangs from the ceiling.
Then we went to go take some pictures by the reflecting pool. I think this is one of my favorite spots at the Botanical Garden. It makes for a great photo op.
Another fountain where the kids stopped to cool off:
