An Afternoon At Botanica

With this beautiful weather, it's tempting to spend the day outside at the zoo. It's spring break, however, which means it is extra crowded so. . .no zoo for us this week. We were dying to get outside yesterday, so we went to Botanica with Grandma Mary, Aunt Kimmy, Alex, Katie, Aidan and Kaleb. Only a handful of other people were there, so we had the whole place to ourselves. Not much was blooming yet, but it was a great day to be outside and the kids had a good time feeding the fish. Olivia was cranky all morning long, but once I put her in the car and we left the house, she was an angel. I think she was as anxious to get out of the house as I was. Of course, we won't talk about how I got lost trying to get there (a place I've been to before in a town I've lived in all of my life) or showed up with my shirt inside-out.

Thanks, Kim, for taking pictures. If I couldn't even get my shirt on right, do you think I would really remember my camera?

Botanica is a place I never would have though to go. We'll have to try that some time. We drove by the zoo yesterday. The parking lot was insane!

Well...if I would remember to tell you the right street to look for then you wouldn't have been lost! We had a great time! Hope we can do it again soon.

P.S. I want to see her new shoes! (If you found some.)

Love the new header. Do you pay for those?

No, I discovered www.scrapblog.com and I'm a bit obsessed. So, you may be seeing new headers every week. :)
