A day at the Arboretum {spring 2011}

We've been part of a playgroup since last fall at our church.
We get to have fun twice a month with a bunch of little kid friends.
We went to the Dallas Arboretum back in April.
It was 90 degrees that day. Yep.
But it was still a lot of fun...you'll see.

Our cousin Ella was part of the group.
Extra exciting.

He loves his freedom.

Brings back memories of being a kid, playing Little House on the Prairie...
(thanks to Kelly & their field...remember when you used that water hose thing as your wheel chair? Still makes my mom laugh hysterically...)

They aren't the only 2 in the group...
but they do love each other.

She loves being his sister...most of the time.
She's sweet.

Preschoolers are a lot of fun.
And they have a lot of personality.
Turns out they also love giant goldfish...

My boy's double swirl head.

His favorite part of the day.
What 16 month old doesn't love a giant sheep up in his business?
Or actually...what sheep doesn't love a 16 month old up in his business?
He couldn't leave that fluff alone...between that & all the goat tails needing a good tug, he gave me my workout for the day.
Thankfully, the animals seemed very unsurprised by his antics.

That was one well groomed goat.

Her favorite part of the day.

We had lunch with a panda, a tiger, & a cat...they were WILD.

We need to go back again.
But I'll have to figure out a way to avoid the massive amounts of face paint being smeared all over the place...& maybe this time I won't have to explain 100 times why it doesn't stay on her face forever. Hard concept.

Ha! Glad I could give you a good laugh:). You were such a nut...& boy were we imaginative. I'm waiting for the day I get my entire house taken over by Parker playing "house." We were good at that one too. Poor Ryan. But that wheelchair...it takes the cake. hehe
