experiments with a magnifying glass



We bought the magnifying glass at the hardware store right before our picnic at the rose garden. I used it to snap some pictures and modeled for Emma how to use it. Then she took and went off exploring on her own. I am not sure that she understands how to hold exactly but she knows what it is for. “Everything look bigger when you look through it” from Little Bear, where he finds Mother’s Bears lost button. ^_^

I am sure I have taken pictures similar to these every time I visit because I love it at the Oakland Rose Garden. It was perfect weather, in the low seventies, and we set up a picnic in the grass. Today we ate nectarines, string cheese, grapes, pretzels and goldfish. Emma climbs all the stairs, today in her yellow rain boots. She knows all the colors and gasps, commenting that everything is beautiful. I am right there with her. Everything is beautiful.
