Not too long after we got our belongings from the movers and had things set up where we could at least sleep and eat we decided we needed to go do something fun with Nola girl. So my brother took us to the Madison Olbrich Botanical Gardens. I didn’t really know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised how quaint, beautiful and kid-friendly this place was! The outdoor gardens are free and the greenhouses are only $2 bucks, so a great option to do during the week when you are running out of things to do! I also kept thinking in my head, ‘this would be the perfect place for a date or to propose?!’ very romantic. I was asking CJ if he took any girls on a date here back in college, he did not 🙂
We moved to Madison to be closer to family and friends, but in addition to that, thankfully (despite the harsh winters) Madison is an awesome place to live. It has been ranked in numerous list’s throughout the years as one of the top places to live in the US because of the University, tons of great food, the schools are really good and for our stage in life there’s a lot to do with your kiddos. This paragraph is really for all of our CA friends trying to convince you to come visit us. Summer and fall are a really great time, just let us know, hehe.
Now to the onslaught of photos from the day if you care to see:
