Auckland Botanic Gardens sculpture trail 2013

Last year we enjoyed the sculpture trail at the Botanic Gardens, and this year was no different. I packed a picnic dinner and some casual clothes for the boys and Grant and I collected them from school and hit the road straight to the gardens. We collected a guide at the entrance and hit the trail, following the signs.

I took this photo before we read the sign saying not to sit on these sculptures - oops!

Other sculptures are meant to be climbed on or interacted with. (Note Noah pushing, rather than pulling, the trolley containing our picnic.)

We had a wonderful afternoon as a family and enjoyed the sculptures and being outdoors. Highly recommended.
