Life through the lens…Gilroy Gardens

I have been excited for the Life Through The Lens link up since Lisa announced it.  I have been wanting to take more photos, and my smart phone takes great pictures.  Over the last week, my life has been a little boring as most of my pictures have been taken of homeschool books (many of them) which I am trying to sell.  But then I remembered that last week, I went with a friend to the Gilroy Gardens. I have never been there before.  Although it is definately a place for families, especially those with younger children, we had a lot of fun! So I hope you don’t mind if I show you pictures from a week ago during my trip to the Gilroy Gardens.

This is a sign that I found at the park, and I loved what it said.

This next picture is of a car that I actually rode on at the park.  You should have heard the kids telling their moms, “mommy she’s too old to ride that car”!

And this is my best friend. Laura.  I just love her to pieces.  We are both artists, love coffee (well, I haven’t had coffee in almost a month) and just enjoy each other’s company.  Aren’t we cute?

What’s been happening in your life lately?  Link up and show me your life in pictures.

    Beautiful photos Barbie! I love going to botanical gardens and just soaking it all in. It is on those moments when I feel closer to God thanks to his nature design.

    How fun! We love Gilroy Gardens, in fact my 5yr old daughter says she wants to go to college somewhere in Gilroy just so she can go to the gardens whenever she wants 🙂

      I have a Samsung Galaxy SIII. Takes pretty good pictures, don’t you think? I have no real camera.

        I should have known. I have the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and have decided to pretty much give up my regular camera (which is a compact but takes awesome photos) because the quality is so amazing. I love my Note!!
