Boener Botanical Gardens & Home T


We went to the Boener Botanical Gardens this week, and I think I found my new favorite spot in Milwaukee! I would always drive past the sign on the highway and think about how I needed to visit some day. But something would always come up and bam 4 years later I still hadn't visited. Flash forward to Tuesday and my friend Megan from Matt and Megan Expecting invited us to go with her and her little sweetie! I said, yes and we headed out.

I don't think anything could have prepared me for what I saw. This place is simply magical.

And what's more surprising is that even though it was the first Tuesday of the month (which meant free admittance for Milwaukee County residents), it was pretty much empty! The major humidity may have been a factor hehe! But it was still surprising to have the whole place pretty much to ourselves. 

Gabriel and Callum were running, chatting, laughing and we couldn't get enough of their cute toddler antics! There are multiple coy ponds and gardens that they could run in and out of. My favorite was hearing Gabriel say, "Hey fishy! How are you?!" I mean, seriously this momma's heart was melting! 

The boys were so happy oohing and ahhing over the rocks, flowers, touching the different herbs, smelling the parsley, and trying to rip out the swiss chard (well Gabriel may or may not have run off with one, but in his defense it was right on the brink of falling off ...) Cristian was happy snuggling up against me in the carrier, but I can't wait till he can run around this place too! 

And I don't think we could've picked a better day for Gabriel to wear his Home T! The entire time we were there I kept thinking, how lucky we are to have a place like this locally. Milwaukee, Wisconsin is beautiful! And how awesome is that they donate a minimum 10% of their profits to Multiple Sclerosis research. It's so awesome when brands are intentional about making a difference in our communities! You can shop for yours here

If you haven't been yet I hope you do soon! You can see the gardens till October! I hope you have a wonderful rest of your week and Happy September!
