A Walk in the Park

As I mentioned the other day, we decided to get out of the house and stretch our legs by going for a hike at Washington Park. It was a beautiful day and because I know the kids would have more fun, I let them each bring a friend along. Now, I have done this hike at least 5 other times, but for some reason, we made a wrong turn and ended up going a lot farther than I planned. Despite that detour, we ended up at the Rose Garden anyway. Of course, the kids couldn't get to the ice cream fast enough, but after that we strolled around the gardens looking at all the beautiful roses. As you can imagine, based on my blog title, I was in heaven! We try to get up to the Rose Garden at least once a year and our timing this time was perfect. Take a look!

Yummy! Right!

Here are some pictures of my cute kids and their friends.
By the time we got home it was close to dinner time. My wonderful husband took my son to dinner and a movie and my daughter had a babysitting gig, so I had the whole house to myself! Woo hoo! You think I would do something fun and creative? No, I just vegged on the couch watching tv. Today we are headed over to Joys. Will have to take some pictures of her awesome projects.
