The Saturday before Easter, we took Grandpa & Grandma to the botanical gardens. The weather was gorgeous, and the boys had a great time checking out the bee hives, the early roses, and the nesting Canada goose. This has been one of my favorite places to take the boys since they were small for several reasons---it's FREE, there's lots of interesting things to see, and it always makes for some great photo ops:
Or how about this one:

|Super-happy face! :)|

All the eggs together!
Last week, we also got to do something else we enjoy as a family. We got to go to a baseball game! It's the minor leagues, so there is usually a way to get tickets fairly inexpensively. This time, we were able to get our whole family in for $5! Plus, it was fifty-cent hot dog night, so we got to eat fairly inexpensively as well. It's always pretty fun, and the boys usually enjoy it. We had to cut the night short though, because it was a school night. We decided to leave at the end of the fifth inning. It was a good thing too, because the game went for eleven innings!! Baseball is fun, but it's nine innings for a reason! :)
This weekend we will be heading up to Camp Comer again for Cub Scout Campout. We had a great time last year, except for a scare, which hopefully we won't be repeating! Tomorrow we head out after lunch, and Mommy is praying for warm, dry weather! Look for an up-coming post about our adventures this time!
I hope you are remembering to take advantage of the fun times you are able to have with your own families. Because that's where lots of "Lego moments" can be found! :)
