Mother's Day at Tyler Arboretum

We had a busy weekend at home this past weekend, working outside on the yard for most of the time (and by "we", I mean mostly Brian).  The flowers have been planted and about 85% of the mulch has been laid down.  But this afternoon, we took a break and headed to Tyler Arboretum.  We didn't know what to expect but it turned out to be the perfect place to spend the afternoon with two little boys who love the outdoors:
There were little house and tree-house structures throughout:
The lilacs smelled amazing:
Actually cooperating for pictures!
Eric - not so much cooperation this time:
Sitting on a frog's head:

Mushroom seats in a little hut:
Treasures behind this door:
Love this pic:
A really cool moth we saw on a tree - looked just like a leaf:
Climbing up into this really high treehouse:
Evan climbing down.  I was a little nervous about this one!
Eric making his way down on his own, with Brian there to catch him if needed:
The three boys in a house:
Evan loved this - jumping from greek trunk to tree trunk.  He could have done this for an hour if we had let him:
The boys in the oversized chairs (with the exception of Brian):
Mother's Day kiss:
We had a blast and will definitely be making a trip back in the future.  Happy Mother's Day to my mom and Janet!  Without them, we wouldn't be the parents we are today :)
