This weekend we went out to Waveland, a local historical site/park area, to check out for a potential location for Cici's 2nd birthday party next month. I know, right? How is Cici still only one year old. Like, time flies and all that, but that girl seems WAY older than one. Maybe it's how well she talks, but this girl seems wise beyond her year(s).
ANYWAY, we met Boo, Chris and Cici out for dinner in the picnic area to see if the shade was enough to allow for a late July party. What we discovered is that we don't really care for any of the side dishes from KFC. Good to know. Also, the place is super nice. I took lots of pictures. Wanna see?
being outside leads to amazing discoveries of things like green bugs that look just like leaves. Nature, it is amazing.
There was a tiny play house, which they seemed to really enjoy. Also, there was a play ground, but those things are a dime a dozen. You don't want to see that, right? Good because I forgot to take pictures of it.
We did find this door that was oddly appealing.
I mean, it's a pretty good door, am I right?
I couldn't stop with pictures of the door. I can't explain it. Except by saying "look how awesome these door pictures are. I am a photography genius" (just let me believe it)
After we broke away from the door and it's addictive qualities we headed to the flower garden. Unfortunately there was a large outside wedding happening right by the gardens so we moved away pretty quickly. Also, it is sorta funny to see how pinterest is influencing weddings and parties now. Like you look at decorations and think "Yeah... you got that idea on pinterest". It's like a pinterest epidemic. It's the most awesome of all the epidemics
After quickly leaving the wedding area (which was hard for me. WEDDINGS! I LOVE THEM!) we decided to take a hike on the little trail. And guess what we found?
A grave yard! For some people, this might seem creepy, but Nick and I have an odd love of old grave yards so we were legitimately excited.
we then moved on from the graves and enjoyed the rest of the short trail. Nice, right?
The kids had such a great time and I am so happy with some of the pictures. Yes, they are holding hands playing with a beam of light. (PHOTOGRAPHIC GENIUS!) (full disclosure, Nick took this picture.)
Doesn't it look like Henry is being beamed up to the mother ship?
That isn't a picture you get everyday.
So all in all Waveland was a great time. And yet I worry that this post along with our recent fishing post would almost make you think we are outdoor kind of people.... which I feel compelled to tell you is not really true. Maybe I should post more pictures of us laying on the couch reading and watching TV, just so I don't feel like I am lying. We really do like air conditioning about 99% of the time. We just seem to take more pictures during that eventful 1% spent in the great outdoors!
