That's right folks! Two years have already flown by. When we started this website, it's purpose was to help our wedding guests learn more about our big day, getting around Metro Detroit, and to share our story. And now, here we are, still sharing with you guys our story...as it's continued. Two years, two babes in tow and we took them with us to explore the National Arboretum this past weekend - on what was the hottest, most humid day of October and apparently the summer...even though its technically autumn. But I digress...if you haven't been to this lovely place, we highly recommend visiting it when you are in DC. We only got to see a small bit of it, since, again it was hotter than a witches cauldron, and so we'll definitely be back to enjoy this place later this year. In the meantime, here some of our "Anniversary Celebratory Outing at the National Arboretum" photos. That was a mouthful, eh? Enjoy!
At the center of the park stand beautiful columns you can get to either via concrete pathways or through well traveled pathways through a field of wild flowers. We chose the field route. Jack fell asleep shortly after getting after the car so he missed most of it. Jolene, on the other hand, had the time of her life! The columns were once part of the Capitol - read more about them here!
If you like learning about nature, this place is for you! We learned about a few different types of plants that are native to these parts as well as different types of grasses...we also started on a trail through the Fern Valley, but quickly realized we would not survive the mile and a half walk in the heat with a stroller, a sleeping babe, and a heat sensitive pooch babe.
Jack woke up just as we were headed back to the car, all hot, sweaty and a little bit moody about it.
We went home, dropped of Jojo so she could relax with ice cold water in her bowl, AC and Animal Planet, while we and baby bro went out for some Mexican food and margaritas! Cheers to two years. Can't help but say, I love adventuring with my little family! Loved our celebratory outing!
Welcome to Details & Highlights! My name is Marjorie and this is my little online journal. It began as our wedding website, which I then revamped and kept as a way to record our adventures and memories.
