I don’t have average-height kids. My eldest, only 13, is about six-feet tall, our middle son is 2-3 inches taller than me, and the youngest is 4’11 like me. So when we go places, people expect to see KIDS…nope, with us you get a kid-sized mom with giant children. The looks as we entered the newly-renovated Botany Hall Kitchen were priceless!
I could just picture the other kids saying, “Whoah, I wanna be tall just like them!”
But no matter their height, these boys are children and have an exploratory mind. They love to discover new things, along with their imaginations, there is no limit to their love of learning. As the boys get older their interests change, but their love of nature and how to preserve it hasn’t. That is why, when Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens invited me and the family to come check out their summer camps, I couldn’t say no.
It’s because of this love of learning, that I wanted to talk to you all about Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens’ Summer Camps. Before I break down their age groups and different camps, make sure you’re signed in to Instagram to check out some of these awesome pics we took!
