stopping to smell the roses

Today we went to the Rose Garden in Allentown. It's one of Nana's favorite places, and the roses are in bloom, so we went there with her today. It was a gorgeous day, though quite warm if you are chasing a toddler around :-) There is a birdhouse on top of each trellis, so besides smelling the roses in the air, you hear the birds chirping and can watch them busily tending to their babies. It's so beautiful there! Enjoy! Click here to see more pics.

My Nana and Pep used to take me to the rose garden all the time. We would make the trip from Lehighton to Allentown on a Saturday morning just so that we could watch all the brides getting their pictures taken. It was nice that Amy and Marc could have some engagement pictures taken there, as well as pictures before their wedding. One of my favorite pictures is a shot of Amy and the girls enjoying the moment as they ran down one of the arbor paths. We have some beautiful pictures....and it is so nice to "pass down" the tradition of visiting the roses and the new bird families each spring. These traditions are one of the most special things a family can share.
