My mom loves flowers. Consequently, we knew one of the places we really wanted to take her was the National Orchid Garden at the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Additionally, Gideon has yet to develop his taste for flowers, but we figured it’s never too early to start. Both of these seemed good reasons to take the sunny day that dawned when Gideon was 10 days old as a day for an outing to the Orchid Garden.
(Forgive me ahead of time for taking lots of pictures of my mom – but she looked so at home amongst the Singapore greenery!)
Can you tell my mom is happy? Can you tell she isn’t missing the colder East Coast weather? Not very subtle…
After Gideon ate, we took advantage of his awake time to take some pictures amongst the orchids.
Mom suggested I take a few pictures of Gideon with the flowers. Unfortunately looking back it looks like he has a flower in his hair! Not very masculine if you ask me. Oh well.
And let us not forget to take a family picture.
There isn’t much else to post about. There were lots of orchids and plenty of lush greenery. The outing went well, and we had enough energy left over to make it to our afternoon church service before heading home. A simple outing, but special nonetheless, with memories that will remain with us as long as the Singapore Botanic Gardens are pretty (… forever).
