Side note: why do I always want to call these places botanical gardens, not botanic? My way sounds right.
It was, obviously, gorgeous.
Here are some photos from the day (the good ones are by Mike, the bad ones are my iPhone):
These are called bachelor buttons which makes me think of buttholes. You're welcome.
I want to live here so badly.
We of course decided these were hobbit holes and got super excited to walk through them.
After the gardens, we got lunch at Uber Sausage which was just ridiculous.
Those are smothered tater tots as your side. Yep.
Then we finished out an awesome day watching a soccer game with new friends at Maria Empanada. We won't talk about how Argentina did in the game...
Oh yeah and pho for dinner.
It was a very un-American 4th, but it was a great day and it makes up for the fact that the effing city fireworks went on for like 2 hours well past 11pm and we got no sleep. Hurumph.
