Happy Arbor Day!

Today we went with Nancy and Preston Lisonbee to Red Butte Garden in Salt Lake to see all the beautiful spring daffodils. I don't think I've ever seen so many varieties of daffodils in one central location. My favorites were the white ones with orange centers, and I also loved the miniature daffodils. So pretty! Since it was Arbor Day, admission was free, and each of the kids received a free oak tree sapling to plant at home. The mayor even came and performed a fun tree planting ceremony. There were lots of things for the kids to do-our favorites were digging in the dirt to explore different kinds of roots, and also feeding the fish in one of the larger ponds. We had a very fun time!
