A few weekends ago we headed over to one of our favorite places, Kew Gardens, and I brought my camera along.
You know how sometimes you make a plan for a little family trip, and nothing really works out the way that you had pictured it in your head? Bad weather, grumpy kids, traffic delays, grumpy adults, overdue naps, spilled drinks, and whining from all parties. These days are inevitable but they’re still really annoying.
This was not one of those days. This was a lucky and happy day when everything fell into place, and I’m so glad that I brought my camera because I won’t be forgetting it anytime soon.
Not that we needed an extra activity on a day of chasing, flower picking, branch swords, and apparently us constantly smothering the kids with kisses, but there was also a Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory exhibit that the kids got in on, including a demonstration of a new candy/candy making machine by Willy Wonka and an elf. (I know WW doesn’t have elfs, but feeling too lazy to google at the moment.) Regardless, the kids thought it was funny, and we stood in the back leisurely drinking our coffee. It worked.
It was a good day.
