New York Botanical Garden
The family went to the New York Botanical Garden to see the Orchid show yesterday. I highly recommend that if you have some time that you try and get there. There is so much to see and the cool part is you can actually listen to the tour on a cell phone. They give you a number to call when you get in and then you enter a code as you get to each different part of the show. The flowers are absolutely gorgeous and the smells are great.
They have a kid section of the garden where yesterday Kimmy and Katie made Boll Weevil hats and planted a soy bean that they were given to take home. During the spring and summer its a great park to walk around and enjoy the day and during the winter they do a train show with model trains and the different sites and buildings of New York City.
