Roses in the garden and on your skin!
We visited the Rose Garden at Exposition Park a few weeks ago.
The girls and I loved it and Papa did too! In fact it was his idea to go there for Father's Day. We are definitely packing a picnic and heading back soon.
While there we also explored the California Science Center.

Here's Papa in the Hurricane simulator...ha ha!
E was sure she'd found Big Boy again!
Speaking of roses...again...
I thought I'd share one of my favorite herbal salves.
I first made this in one of Julie's classes. I instantly went home and made some and I've been making it ever since.
Why is it so wonderful? Red roses are considered cooling and astringent, good for skin irritations. There's also been studies done showing that they have cell-regenerative properties too (yay for under the eyes!). Here's just a few things we use this for:
- Make-up remover
- Under eye moisturizer
- "ouchy cream" for bumps, scrapes and bruises
- dry skin
- dry chapped lips (when more than just my lip balm is necessary)
I'll be calling those of you who pre-ordered. This stuff is definitely worth the wait!
