Artful Gardens

We finally have some gorgeous sunny skies here,
after an abnormal amount of rain.

We went to visit Sierra Azul's Sculpture garden this weekend.

It was lovely! The kids had a blast running around.

The three playhouses, carved from tree trunks, are so cute.

There is Little Bear's House, Rabbit's House & Mr. Toad's House.
They all look different.

This nursery is less than 5 minutes from our house.
It's one of daddy's favorite places to go.

It is a fabulous place to run & play & explore.

There was a bit of drama when the kids & I
ran right through a good patch of super slimy mud.
Peyton had the worst time of dealing with the situation.

With many tears, he sat in a dry patch of grass
to try to clean off his feet.

The sculptures are all really fun, even for the kids.
The big pair of hands is one of our favorites.

We also saw a little bunny scurrying through the bushes.
They thought for sure we would find him again in the bamboo forest.

But, he hid himself too well. Maybe we'll see him next time.

I forgot to answer your question! The garden is totally free!

I love your daughter's green dress! She blends right in with all of the beautiful green in nature. :)
