Nature Appreciation

We took our annual Labor Day trek back to Chicago this weekend to visit my family and friends. It was very enjoyable. We went to the Chicago Botanical Gardens on Saturday. It was beautiful. I definitely want to go back again when I have more time (I spent an hour and ten minutes of our visit sitting in the van with my sister Hannah and the sleeping baby). Here are some pictures from our outing.
