friday family fun freaktasticly fabulous FIOLI!

Since we're always always into a fun naturey adventure I thought I'd share this with you...

Explore: Filoli

Filoli Sunken Garden
The forecast for Sunday promises sunshine and we’re itching for an outdoor adventure. Celebrate the return of spring by exploring the beautiful gardens at Filoli, a lovingly-preserved country estate in Woodside with some very special family-friendly events you won’t want to miss.   Their annualSpring Fling is coming up in April, followed by theirMother’s Day Celebrationin May.
When to go: March thru June are the most colorful months, but the gardens are lovely at any time. Check out the ‘What’s blooming’ year-round calendar on their website to find out when your favorite flowers will be at their best.
Where is it? Filoli is located 30 miles south of San Francisco.
What to see and do: Walk through sixteen acres of gardens of all different kinds, visit the house itself, drop by the garden shop, and take a docent-led nature hike to the greenhouse where the little ones can pot a plant, decorate it, and bring it home.
Where to have lunch: The Filoli CafĂ© serves delicious house-made paninis, fresh salads, quiches, desserts, and more.  They also have a children’s menu.
How to dress: Take jackets in case you want to eat outdoors on the patio.
Cost of trip: Moderate.  Children 4 and under are free.
Bonus: For all you movie buffs out there, scenes from The Wedding Planner and The Joy Luck Club were filmed at Filoli.
