1st Grade field trip to Arboretum

Evan’s first grade went to the Houston Arboretum this year. A very unusual enclave of wilderness in the middle of the city.

What a bizarre place. Lots of snakes and other wildlife. Lots of poison ivy. Lots. I’m pretty sure Evan got into something, as he broke out in rashes wherever he could touch.
