Today was an amazing Saturday! We went to see the Orchid Show at the incomparable Missouri Botanical Garden! Orchids are just so amazingly diverse. We saw rich reds and purples and lush dripping blossoms but also subtle peaches and greens, teeny little petals and monster jaw buds.

God blessed us so much with this visit. It was exactly what we needed after such a harsh and severe winter. Breathing in the tropical air, smelling the delicious, and even the putrid, flower aromas was so refreshing! Daphne was restless for most of the trip, but she got lots of attention from others at the show and one man even asked if he could photograph her because he thought she was so cute. This is actually the second time a random stranger has done that, weirdly enough. But, anyway, she did pretty well with us, especially when we took her out of the stroller and showed her the pretty flowers.

Also, this is random but worth mentioning, we saw a mouse eating the bird food in the Climatorium. which totally made me squeal with fright and jump onto Jon. It was actually kind of cute, but when it saw us looking at it, it started running really fast and I was so scared it would run up my leg. I know, unlikely, but those little things!

All in all, it was a lovely family day!!
