I had never been to the Cleveland Botanical Gardens. I was, however, anxious to visit them because Caitlin takes Holli and Andrew there quite frequently. Whenever I think about botanical gardens in general I think about places that have lots of beautiful flowers. What I discovered about these gardens was that they are that and so much more. It is an enchanted place where children's imaginations can run wild and adults are transported back to their own childhood as well.
Poppi flew in to join us for a few days and as soon as his plane came in we set out for a full day of adventure in the gardens. We started out in the rainforest where there were butterflies flying around our heads and occasionally landing on some people's hands.
This one had a slide and wooden tic-tac-toe game.
The musical treehouse was one of my favorites!
As we confined to walk we found this zip line that the girls absolutely loved!
