We did it! At the end of this summer we saw the Santa Cruz water lilies at the University of Helsinki Botanical Garden that I wrote about before in my blog (see the article here). And yes, they were huge and I was so tempted to put my kids on them, but unfortunately you are not allowed to do that. I have heard stories about workers who have taken pictures of their babies on them, and definitely it would have been an adorable view to see my little ones floating on a leaf boat. Something to dream about.
