Memphis Botanic Garden

Thursday, July 17, 2014

I have a terrible memory. I mean TERRIBLE. Ask anybody, but there are some days I hope I never forget. This one almost two weeks ago now, was one of those. It was perfect in every way, from the weather to the well behaved children. We started at the Memphis Botanic Garden and ended at the IMAX for Flight of the Butterflies. The kids area of the Botanic Garden is filled with fun swings.

Some sweet friends met up with us for the fun.

There was even a rope spider web to climb.

After getting our fill of the kids area, we cut over to the Japanese Garden to feed the Koi. It was intriguing for both child and adult. The Koi swarmed together for a chance at the food.

I actually have tons of pictures, but unfortunately there was a random little boy without a shirt on that kept gathering around us. Not necessarily what I’d like to post!

If I lived in Memphis, I’d have to have a membership here. It would certainly be our go to photo setting.

Avery has always been drawn to butterflies, and she loves learning new things about them. The Flight of the Butterflies movie at the IMAX was amazing!! We learned a few new things, and really enjoyed the experience of the 3D movie. The kids were adorable as they attempted to “catch” the butterflies that appeared to be flying in arms reach.

I’m so thankful for this beautiful day and the experience of it all!

  1. The gardens are beautiful! When I was a girl, my grandmother took me there for photos, too. We will add this place to our list the next time we visit Memphis, so thanks for the idea/reminder! And gorgeous photos of the girls!
