The beautiful weather today pushed the miserable cold winter a little further from our memories.
We came home from work on Friday pondering what to do this weekend. I have some other plans tomorrow, so we wanted to get out of the house today. Allie suggested going to the dream park, the play ground and a few other places, one being the flower gardens. We knew today was supposed to get nice, but weren’t sure how nice. But it ended up being great! I got a nice 6-mile run outside this morning and it was supposed to get warmer, so we headed toward the east side of town to the Olbrich Botanical Gardens.
We didn’t get going until 3, but then I discovered they were only open until 4 today (starting in April the outside gardens are open until 8). It ended up working out prefect though. We decided to still go and then since we were heading toward the east side, we went and had an early dinner at Texas Roadhouse.
But back to the gardens. I expected everything to be brown and bare, but that really wasn’t the case at all! In fact, there were many areas that were already green! And while there was a somewhat chilly breeze this morning, the wind pretty much went away this afternoon. And with the sun out, it felt so great to be outside.
