We spent a Saturday afternoon at Mercer Arboretum and Botanic Gardens. I was supposed to be getting certified as a TurboKick instructor but it got canceled because too few people signed up. I was sad it was canceled but I was glad we got to enjoy the beautiful day as a family.

We watched a bird show on our way out. Alex was especially amazed. I was amazed that Alex was answering questions about the birds. He retains all sorts of information. I wish I had a memory like his.

They trained a bird to snatch money out of our hands for tips. Brilliant. I bet they made a fortune.

We walked right under a moving train and it was loud!
