30 Days of Happiness, Day 18: An Afternoon with the Peacocks

Roy, Charlie, and I headed out to the L.A. Arboretum today for some three-month photos of Charlie. Our family photographer Crissy and her husband met us there. Because I wasn't the main photographer of the day, I only took a few photos while we were there.

There were peacocks everywhere! I loved this guy, who was hanging around the patio of the cafe. He ate right out of my hand! So cool.









I also loved this turtle, who started climbing out of the water when we came near it. I think he thought we were going to feed him...



And these three characters were hilarious, sitting on top of each other in the middle of the lake.



I loved this fountain and wish I would have taken more photos of it.



I also love old machinery type stuff, so this was right up my alley...



On the way home, we saw this awesome person with his/her awesome bumper stickers (click to enlarge):



We didn't get to spend nearly enough time wandering around the arboretum, but what little we saw was really beautiful. I can't wait to go back - hopefully with less stuff next time.

It was a really nice day. I am really excited to see how our photos came out. And speaking of photos, Roy and I did our own three-month session with Charlie earlier in the week. Click here to check 'em out - I love most of them.
