I have been in the process of upgrading to a new computer and it is taking much longer than expected! Here are a ton of overdue photos from Sabine and my trip to Nana and Pappy’s house earlier in June.
Nana and Pappy’s backyard was magical – full of beautiful plants, trees, garden statues, a Sabine-sized bench and fish pond.
It was also full of mosquitos. We put bandaids over each bite to keep her from scratching.
We started taking pretend photos of flowers with her toy cell phone. Pretty funny what they learn from their Mama!
Sabine helped Pappy feed the fish every morning and evening. By the end of the trip she knew what time they were to be fed and would carry the fish food over to him saying, “Paaaaappyyyyy, fiiiiiiish!”
The yard was also the perfect place to have super fun nakie time in the water! The first day she played in the watering can.
Later she became more brave and ventured into a kiddie pool and the garden hose.
She took some garden rides in a 30-year old Little Tykes Wagon that my brother and I used to ride in.
We went to the Huntsville Botanical Gardens and saw some incredible Lego sculptures.
The bison and bird were my favorite.
The fox hunting a rabbit were also pretty cool!
Sabine brought kitty to the gardens, and a huge bug bite on her head.
It was exciting!
Sabine, kitty and I took a wee hike at Green Mountain Nature Trail.
It was really fun, but very humid and VERY buggy.
This is what we think of humidity and bugs.
We also visited the Children’s Museum and had a ride on the famous Lily Flag cow.
We took a few epic naps of desperation.
Auntie Laura helped us discover Sabine finally has enough hair for a bow!
We played music with our new friend.
And finally, we spent 6 extra hours in the Atlanta airport in return for a $1,300 e-credit on Delta! Evidently they seriously overbooked and were desperate for people to give up their seats so we now get to take the entire family to San Fransisco in August! Yippee!
