Our First Family Trip To The LA Arboretum

      I just love getting the same holidays off that my students do. I’ve said it before, it’s a much appreciated perk of being a teacher. This Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I spent my free afternoon with my family at the LA Arboretum. It was Mia’s first time there and Dominic’s and my first time there as a married couple.

     Mia loved all the sights and her first encounters with a few geese and some peacocks. It was a gorgeous day with a temperature of about 80 degrees. Pretty sweet for a January day, right? But…as I write this (only 3 days later) it’s raining outside and everyone’s wearing coats and scarves. That’s southern California for ya.

     Here’s our fabulous family day in photos. We even took our tripod to get some pics with all 3 of us, which is typically a tricky thing to do. I’m usually the one behind the camera but this time Dominic relieved me of my official photographer duties long enough to capture some of my favorite photos of my daughter and me together. Thanks, hubby.

 (Btw…Mia is a week shy of 9 months old here)

I love my Bob so much, I let him in the picture. He’s my best accessory.

Ya, this might be my favorite picture with Mia yet. It’s going in a frame for sure.

Mommy and Daddy can’t wait for the day when Mia is chasing these peacocks around. She’s standing on her own for seconds at a time and is pushing a walker around to help her walk, so her chasing days are just around the corner.

Where are some of your favorite spots to take the kids? The LA Arboretum is definitely at the top of our list.
