treehouses from last year was still there and the trains were also still there - a smaller version but still cool! We packed a picnic and Declan had his very first experience with grass. Like the others, he was not a fan of this new feeling and was trying to lift his body out of the grass while he way lying in it - difficult but great practice for crawling!! We had fun until the very end when Aoife took an enormous tumble and scraped her knees and hands up pretty badly. It's a good thing I always carry first aid wipes, bandaids and tylenol in the car. I can't wait to go back for the hydrangeas. Last year we never made it because it was SO HOT and I was sick all the time. This year hopefully there will be a day when we can make it down!!
Aoife's favorite flowers - purple!
