More from the Botanical Gardens

On Fridays, Ryan likes to get off a little early if he can (by working a few hours extra earlier in the week) and we set out on the e-bike for a park. It's a really good way to clear the mind and relax after the busyness of a week. There's nothing like being out in nature to calm the eyes, plus it's a great way to be together as a family!

Today Ryan has to work a full day since we don't have hours worked ahead, plus it's raining so a park isn't an option anyway. So looking at pictures from last week's excursion to the Botanical Gardens at JiaoTong University Minhang will have to do.

 Showing off what she found...This girl LOVES exploring outside, so we alternated walking with her in her stroller and letting her walk and explore with help.

 We watched busy butterflies for a while

These columns reminded us of a bed & breakfast we stayed at on our honeymoon :)


 She discovered she could walk alone by pushing her stroller backwards 

 Hadassah doesn't really like to smile at the camera these days. Shocker, right? But there's so much else to see and do... But Ryan had persistence and we got a smile out of her on the 10th or so picture!

 Such intricacy in a simple path!

There were many random rock formations. This one had a big nose.

    Beautiful! You are a great photographer Mrs. Anna! And by the way, I got your letter on September 16th. :) I liked those stamps. Will be saving them!
