Celebrating Lunar New Year at the Botanical Gardens

Will and I went to the State Botanical Gardens in Athens, GA this past weekend as part of our Valentine’s celebration. The gardens are broken up into different sections: the garden house, the greenhouse, the kids area, the trails, and the outdoor cultural gardens. I personally like the greenhouse best. It reminds me of going to the Biltmore House with Will back during our first spring break together. How cute!

This weekend the gardens were decorated for the lunar new year. Chinese lanterns were hung everywhere in the greenhouse. It felt absolutely magical!

There were quite a few educational activities. They were meant for kids, but Will and I checked them out anyways. I taught him how to use chopsticks!

This year’s the year of the pig. Did you know that some American kids are developing British accents because of Peppa Pig? Conversely, did you know that Peppa Pig is banned in China? Crazy, right?

That’s all for now! Zài jiàn!
