My Big Backyard

Savy and her friend, Maeson, had a playdate today at the botanic gardens. Savy hasn't seen Maeson for several months, and she couldn't wait for today to get here.

We actually got the girls to sit still for a picture.

Scarlett with her little top-knot. Savy said she looks like Pinky Dinky Doo. In case you're wondering, that's a gigantic earthworm in the background.

I still love this trio of little play-houses. The first is music themed with all kinds of things to bang on and make noise with. Savy actually spent the least time in this one - last time I could barely drag her out of there.

The next house has a washtub, washboard, and a little miniature clothesline. There are clothes there to pretend to wash and hang to dry. This one was the favorite today.

The little fairy house is still my favorite.

Then it was time to stop for a snack.

Savy's favorite part is still the "thunderstorm" area and the little wading creek.

Notice her blue arm? Jon got that to keep her cast from getting wet during works pretty well for wading and sprinklers too. When she has that thing on, she kinda reminds me of the guy from the movie District Nine...the one who was turning into an alien.

Our last stop was the koi pond. Savy started feeding the geese that hang around the pond...big mistake. They started chasing her and even got a little aggressive - a couple actually hissed at the kids.

Maeson kept a close eye on the birds after the hissing incident.

They had a great day - can't wait to do it again!
