About three weeks ago(I know, I am really that far behind)I took the girls to Longwood Gardens for the afternoon. I thought it would give us something to do and we had not been there for a visit in a long time. We usually go at least once or twice a year, but I think we skipped it last summer. You know, we were just a little busy waiting for "The Call".
Had I been there by myself, without the kids, I think I could have spent hours just looking at the gorgeous flowers and gardens. It is really a spectacular place, but.......
dragging two little ones around the sprawling gardens in 90 Degree weather was not exactly easy. We were all a tad hot and the girls were growing tired of just walking and looking.
Lucky for them, they have a fun children's garden complete with a fountain that they can splash around in.
We were parked at that fountain for a good hour plus.
The girls were having lots of fun trying to catch the water as it sprayed up in the air.
After they were completely soaked and feeling cooled off, I convinced them to move to the other areas of the garden.
Reagan was completely mesmorized by the life sized xylophone and was very excited to hear that she was actually making "music".
It was definitely worth the hour road trip, but I wish I would have picked a day that was a little cooler. We might have seen more of the exhibits. I could tell the girls had reached their limit and I did not want to push them in that heat.
As always, it has been busy, busy, busy around here. So I thought I would include a few updates that I have not had time to post about over the last week.
I picked the winner for of the August "Get Out of the Auto Zone" photography class and updated it on the original blog post, so click HERE to see who won.
Secondly, I am going with my gut and we are taking Reagan to see the Doctor tomorrow concerning her speech. I called and expressed my concerns and he said to bring her in and we will come up with a game plan.
I will post an update as soon as I have time!
Happy Wednesday.... Try to stay cool.
I also wanted to thank my friend Daleea who made the beautiful and colorful Tra-La-La Skirts and beaded bracelets for Reagan and Sarah. The girls loved them and they looked so cute wearing them. If you are looking for something fun and girly, check out her shop, Lady Peep Boutique. You can click HERE to shop or browse her collections. I am sure you will find something that catches your eye:)
