Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens

Since it's "only" supposed to be in the 90's today, the law firm (as my husband calls us....Erin and Erin....get it?) decided to take the kiddos to the Children's Garden at Lewis Ginter. We'll save story time for a hot or rainy day! They were super excited to get out and run till they couldn't run anymore.

Only in a mother's dream would this happen in real life:
They came across these hula hoops. It was funny watching them try to figure it out....it was freaking hilarious watching us try to show them :)

As if we don't have tons of sidewalk chalk at home...guess its more fun some place new.
Then we stumbled on the water play area. It sure did look cool:
Till the water came on:
That's ok, Hannah liked it!
They had to say bye bye to the water:
Then we climbed up the great big tree house (and by climb, I mean walked up the ramp):
They liked getting to sit up high and see everything down below:
Our little monkeys in their tree house:
I can NEVER get them to look at me at the same time!
And back to the water. Vince seemed more interested this time around....a little:

Soon we found the giant sand box with dinosaurs!
And he found the broom.....again.
And this is why we LOVE Hannah. You can put the girl in the cutest flowery dress and at the end of the day, she would so much rather sit in the sand.....
and play with dinosaurs.
Lastly, before our children turned into Mr. and Mrs. Hyde (thus quickly ending the trip), they played house.
Once again, I failed to get them both looking at me at the same time. Maybe another day!
