Our Visit to the South Texas Botanical Gardens and Nature Center


Our second mini trip of the summer was a quick flight to Corpus Christi!

We rented a car (and carseat) via Hertz Rent-A-Car and we were off to the Spring Hill Inn and Suites in Corpus. The main day of our mini trip, we decided to visit the Texas State Aquarium later in the day and we had a FREE morning! So, we decided to visit the South Texas Botanical Gardens and Nature Center.



Our little one really enjoyed the "flamingos". In fact, it was my first time to hear her recognize and say the word "flamingo"! 


Beautiful flowers! My husband took these pictures!



More walking! She is definitely on the move!





I admired the bountiful swiss chard in the garden! Simply beautiful!



Yes, she loves Agua. Get out of the fountain! :) 


There were neat statues and sculptures EVERYWHERE!



  
These playgrounds were a welcome surprise for this family!









Neat picture, right??? :)
