Family History is not just for Dead Relatives

Family History is not something that just happened in the deep past. Some of it happened today, or just last week, or just last month. So here is a little photo journal of a trip to the Los Angeles County Arboretum with some of my favorite family members in May 2014.
Of course the most important family member was riding in comfort and style--our Lindi Rose.

The peacocks greeted us as we entered the arboretum.

Leanna, Jeff, Beau, and Julee watch as one of the peacocks gets close to Lindi's carriage.

Melanie protecting Lindi from the sun has her wrapped up from head to toe.

I'm not sure how Lindi felt about that. We saw many beautiful flowers and flowering trees like the camellia, the California poppies, and the Jacaranda tree below.




We also saw some unusual plants and trees like the ones in the pictures below.




One of my favorites was the bamboo forest.

 And some family members felt the need to show their palm tree climbing skills.

And finally, this shot of a boy and his mom has to be one of my favorites.
