Botanic Gardens

Our visit to the Botanic Gardens was a hot one-- in the upper 80s/lower 90s... we managed to hit every water fountain around and got to see the train exhibit. The kids had a great time and were a tired crew afterwards--- a huge bonus!

Shay trying to get as close as she can to the water


Kylie and Shay


Trains, trains, trains!

Shay watching for the trains to come underneath the bridge. She was entertaining everyone there because she was so excited- she'd jump and scream and laugh all at the same time.

waiting, waiting, waiting....


Rose fountain-- where we all got completely soaked, but so worth it!

Ani and Shay

No excuses..

I've got no excuses except I just did not want to write on the blog when it has been so nice out... So today we'll play catch-up. Here are some pics from the past month.

Anika playing with Kylie's clothes- they cleared out Kylie's entire dresser. Lovely mess.

Shay playing library

Water Table makes its first appearance (we only did water, no sand....)

Shay pretty excited although the picture makes it look like the water was a bit cold.


Odin guarding the strawberries

Ready to go outside NOW!!!


Shay playing in the flowers-- sweet outfit, huh?

Kylie showing off her pots she did with her Dad. Very proud.

Showing Anika all the flowers

CHEESE-- well, almost everyone is looking....

Loving the shower feature, but it is a bit cold MOM!


All three!

When Good Babies go bad....

Shay and her new domain with her babies.....

And when babies are bad, they go in the drawer..... and we stuff as many as we can in there...


Feeding time- Anika very carefully feeding baby. She does not want anything on the baby, very neat eater.

Shay, well, she doesn't care if her baby is covered in food.

Kylie and Shay trying on the party hats-- at noon... waiting for Chris to come home-- in 7 hours... (And don't you just love Kylie's outfit!)

The girls all ready for the party!!
