Another trip to Aldridge Gardens

Now that the weather is finally nicer here, this morning we had another trip to Aldridge Gardens. For a couple of weeks the babies have been moving toward one nap a day, so this past Wednesday we moved lunch to an earlier time followed by a single nap. So far the transition is going pretty well, and the best part about it is that it gives us more time to do things in the morning without rushing home for a nap. So, we leisurely got ready to leave, spent a little longer than usual at the Gardens, then picked up lunch on the way home (more about that later). Here are some pics from this morning:

While we were walking on the trail around the lake, all of the sudden Gary took off running with the babies. I heard a little squeak come from Piper, and then they were gone!

Here's what the babies thought about the running:

After that, we let the kids out of the stroller to run around and play for a little while. . . .

For some reason, Henry put his face right down into the grass and laid there for a while, but then he sat up and eventually gave me a good smile for the camera:

Rosemary had too much to do to sit down for long and let me take pictures of her:

There is a small "stream" and "waterfall" at the gardens, and Gary took each of the kids over to play while we were there.

Piper really enjoyed playing in the water:

Henry immediately put his entire face in the water (that must be a boy thing):

Rosemary must have been a little thirsty because she wanted to drink the water!

All in all, it was a great morning for all of us.
