Day Trip: National Arboretum

So I & the kids joined some friends for a trip to the National Arboretum in DC. This was our first time there & were amazed that all of this is in DC.  There was no way to see all of it, but we saw & enjoyed a lot of it!  The Capitol Columns, The Bonsai Garden, & a lot of time in the Youth Garden.

We meet one of the gardners in the youth garden & she helped A pick a fresh tomato.  And we learned that all of the harvested food gets donated to the Capital Food Pantry.  Then the kids played in the natural playground and couldn’t be happier!

We walked around the Capitol Columns from 1826. Then headed to the Bonsai Garden & saw the wide variety of trees.  Along with one Japanese White Pine from 1625!

The traffic was crazy heading out that way,  but we would love to go back & explore more!
