Daffodil Glade

A host of golden daffodils; Beside the lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. ~ William Wordsworth
In honor of Earth Day, the Morton Arboretum was offering free admission today. The weather was perfect which meant crazy crowds. So, we didn't make it over to the Children's area to meet some homeschool friends. Instead we hung back near a field of beautiful daffodils~
It was a little damp from all the rain, but the kids still had fun running around~

Really great photo ops~
It's difficult to get everyone looking at the camera at once~
A little better~

Mary says "cheese" now when she sees the camera~
Mary is going to have a hard time keeping up with her brothers~
But not for lack of trying~

It was a beautiful day. The Morton Arboretum really is an amazing little retreat here in the western suburbs.

I love this photo journalism entry. Daffodils in the glade and little Mary wandering around as lovely as a cloud. Isn't that how Wordsworth put it?
