Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden

Took a day off sometime last month for my convocation ceremony so spent the morning with Anya at the Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden. However, I was very silly and didn’t bring along her swim things, extra clothes, sun block or even insect repellent! But we still managed to have some fun and she didn’t get bitten or burnt or anything! I love that most of the plants there are labelled and grouped in a thematic manner so that kids (and adults) can learn more about them.
