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.

      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!!
