The Latest Outings To Descanso Gardens

  If you’re ever looking for an easy, quick and affordable way to spend part of your day, I’d have to recommend Descanso Gardens (if you live in/near the Verdugos). It’s beautiful, scenic, peaceful and makes you feel like you’re far from the city. My mom and my family have a year membership there (which is definitely affordable) and we frequent this location together whenever we need to get out of the house or when a beautiful day is upon us. Here are some photos of one of our most recent trips, all 3 generations accounted for. On that note, I’d like to take a hot minute to just say that I’m so thankful that my mom is so close by and has such a close relationship with my daughter. I feel lucky and my Mia is lucky to not only have Grandma in her life but to have my mom as a grandma. My mom is a pretty amazing woman and I look forward to watch her relationship with my daughter continue to grow. I never had a close relationship with a grandparent so this is very new to me and makes it all the more important to me to make sure I keep a strong connection between them.

You know what I see below? I see some great “backdrops” for future photo sessions! That’s right, I did a little location scouting while I was there.

This next visit was the first time I took Mia to the gardens by myself. It’s definitely more difficult to do when you have a 15 month old who’s walking/running around and doesn’t listen to a dang word you say. She walks in the opposite direction we’re headed, she’ll veer off the path and into bushes where I have to squeeze myself into to grab her and she tries to climb into koi ponds and bodies of water to get a closer look at the fish. She’s a little scoundrel, she is.
