I love the MN Arboretum.
It took me a year or two of living here before I finally visited to see what it was all about. I really didn't think that the kids would like it. I was wrong and I am so glad I was wrong. The kids had such a great time. I was grinning from ear to ear! Don't you just love it when the kids enjoy something that you enjoy.
One Christmas we were given a family year pass by a dear friend that has since past away. I've been buying family passes ever since. Last year I had this strange feeling when I was buying the pass. It felt like paying the heating bill or the grocery bill. Not in a bad way of paying the bills. More like you don't have to think twice kinda paying the bills. Of course you are going to pay for heating your home, you can't go cold can you? Of course you are going to pay what you need to in order to feed your family, you can't go without eating can you? Of course you are going to get that family pass to the Arboretum, you can't go without seeing the crab-apple trees in bloom and seeing the dahlia's bloom and...
See what I mean. Easy as pie. As simple as breathing.
Now that it is spring I will be posting about our adventures in this lovely place more often.
