Our family adventures

Gardens in bloom

Leave a comment

Two posts in one week? Yes, it happened!

We had kind of a rough weekend. Saturday was filled with chores. We weren’t going to go anywhere, but when Peyton decided not to take a nap, we made a spur-of-the-moment trip to Olbrich Botanical Gardens. We were there in February and even without leaves, it was pretty (never got around to posting those pictures… its still on the list of posts to post!). But it was even better to see so much green and so many blooms! I don’t know if the kids appreciated the blooms as much as the freedom to just run, mostly uninhibited.

Many, if not all, of the fountains were on… and we had fun trying to keep Peyton out of them.

Peyton was on the cranky side since he chose not to nap that day…

Allie was happy to smile for Mama, but happier to keep running.

Pretty!

This was where Peyton actually made contact with the water.

And this was where Peyton fell down and just laid there sobbing for a couple minutes. This boy’s tantrums are WAY more than Allie’s ever were!

We got home and our evening was much better than the afternoon had been. Peyton still took a long time to fall asleep at bedtime though!
