our destination - botanica, the wichita gardens.
not only does ben love visiting there, but they just opened a children's garden over the summer -
it was AMAZING!
dad made an early morning run to get donuts to start the day.
ben still has no idea "where" we are going.
in fact we were having so much fun,
we missed taking pictures of many other features in the children's garden.
so you'll just have to go yourself to see it all.
after exploring the gardens, we had our picnic lunch.
ben opened his gifts - playing with each one before going on to the next.
then it was time for cupcakes - YUM!
happy birthday ben!
