The theme of the holiday display at the Botanic Gardens was "The Seven Wonders of the World" (plus a few other places). We checked out the main display room first which was very cool, since everything inside was made from plant/natural material. It was so impressive! Afterwards we toured the rest of the Gardens, since we had never been there before. Calder loved the jungle room the best!

We visited the National Christmas Tree on the day after Christmas with Zaidy and Grandma in tow. It was so cold and crazy windy outside...so we didn't spend a lot of time there and I didn't take a lot of pictures. Calder enjoyed finding the state trees for Virginia, Michigan and Pennsylvania, but we were all disappointed that the train that normally runs around the big tree wasn't running that night.
