Valentine's Day at the Garden

Today we went to the Botanical Garden and while it was a bit chilly to walk around outside, so we didn't, our main objective was the annual Bee Mine Valentine's Day craft event. This is a relatively new event the Western Kentucky Botanical Garden has started but the girls have really enjoyed it every year.

The girls made paper orchid hair clips.  

Then they made simple sucker holders with foam and stickers.

The girls made Bee pictures with stickers and their hands painted.

They each made a card too! Katherine made her card for Peter and myself. Brielle is still tight lipped about her card. Katherine wanted us to read her card right away though.

Katherine's card to us.

After the crafts the kids got hot cocoa and we went to go look at the plants inside. 
Everything was absolutely beautiful and I'm so glad to make sure to get the family out of the house.

We left there and went and met his parents for lunch dipping into our food budget (more than I want to think about so I didn't look at the bill) and then took the kids over to a gaming shop where Brielle picked out an anime book and Katherine got Pokemon cards because she wants to learn how to play. The kids got gifts because they were both on the A/B Honor Roll again and while we may not pay for every grade we do try to make sure to reward them for their hard work and dedication to school. 

We're home now and it looks like my husband has elected it to be nap time. The kids are bundled up because even though it's bright outside it is still cold. We kicked the kids outside though because it's good for them to get some fresh air and just be kids. 

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
