Chicago Botanic Garden

The girls and I went to the Chicago Botanic Garden today. It was overcast and cool but the gardens were absolutely beautiful.

The highlight for the girls was the Train Garden. It's a series of train tracks -- complete with freight trains, circus trains, commuter trains and even a trolley -- all weaving through models of US landmarks. The buildings are all made out of sticks, twigs, acorns and other natural materials and the landscape is all made out of little tiny real trees.

The girls absolutely loved it!

For some reason Kenna was up at 3:30 this morning. So, needless to say, she was asleep in the car before we even left the parking lot.
