This past Monday, we met up at the Huntsville Botanical Gardens. And, wow! I have never been here before, but wow!! Now, I love our local gardens, of course. But, this place is FAR better (sorry, but true!). The paths are mostly paved and you can get to everything...with a stroller. Hello?! Why can't ours figure out that this is a major necessity for mamas of many? It was awesome. Lots of shade, yet lots of sunny areas. A bunch of stuff for the kids to do - whether they wish to stay dry or get completely soaked! It is a fabulous place.
Here are some photos from our day together. Enjoy!!
|Thanks, Diana, for getting this pic! I'm not sure how many you took to make it happen, but it is a winner!|
|One of many Water Rock Gardens|
|Lego Race Track - they all loved this one. We had to almost drag some of them away LOL|
|Alex loving the giant chair, yet wishing it was green...|
|Andrew perfectly fine with it being a wonderful shade of blue!|
|Austin thought the Sunflower Maze was pretty cool. You can move the leaves around any which way to make it work for you.|
|Alex (4) and Cole (5) hanging out in one of a few of the tree houses. These were pretty cool.|
|Andrew thought the lookout was the best! He asked if we can make a tree house camp ground place just for kids at the new house. Sure!!|
|One of a few Lego sculptures we found. I think we only came across 2 out of the 12 or so that were there. There was just so much to do and see! We have to go back!|
|The Rocket Garden within the Children's Garden. This thing was crazy! Alex pushed the button and water shot out all over Cole! They all thought it was hilarious! Silly boys!!|
|Cole (left) and Alex stopping for a pic while Andrew, Austin, and I backtrack on a hunt for the lost water bottle. No worries! We found it! Whew!|

|The "tail end" to a fabulous day! Haha!|
It was so much fun! Can't wait to get together again!
