July 7-8, 2014 Arboretum and Doctor appointments

Monday, I went to the Arboretum with my friend, Arsen.  He has a memborship and could bring a guest so we decided to check it out. The first thing we saw on the trail was the back of a peacock.  The peacock kept turning around as if to show off his beautiful feathers so I jumped in and grabbed a picture.

There were a few peacocks on the trees and roaming around, and the peacock we first saw finally put his feathers down.  I went up close to take a photo and he was not shy at all to have his photo taken.

There were a few greenhouses up ahead

Like, that peacock they were not the least bit shy either!  This was the weirdest creepiest thing I’d ever encountered with ducks and a turtle. lol.  I then realized I had some crackers in my purse.  They probably knew that or something the way they came after us.  So I took it out and we started to feed them but tried to aim it away from us so they’d go away.

Then yet again, they came climbing up the side toward us.  So weird.

On Tuesday, my mom had doctors appointments all day from 6a-5p so that took up most of my day then I went to GEP to play.  Got home around 11:30p and went straight to bed.  I was so tired.
