Flowers, Animals and Books! (Oh My!)

It's a beautiful, sunny day in Austin today!! We got out of the house this morning and had some fun. First stop was The Natural Gardener, my favorite nursery. It's a fun place to take the kids, there are a few farm animals to look at - they have a couple donkeys and a chicken coop that provide lots of free entertainment. There was an exciting new addition today too - a goat pen! Yay! I just love walking around this nursery, looking at the gorgeous display gardens - a butterfly garden, veggie garden, herb garden, fountains, statuary - makes me feel calm and peaceful. Not a common feeling during the day with my little monsters! LOL! I also made some plans for my flower beds while we were there. Here's some photos...

One of the donkeys came right up to us to say "hello", and then enjoyed a drink of water.Courtney got a huge kick out of looking at the chickens!This was heaven for Carter - a long row of windchimes!Mommy loved all of the poppies in bloom today.After Natural Gardener we headed over to the library to return our books and check out new ones. One of Carter's favorite things there is the fountain out front. Daddy fyi there are no more pennies in your car...!Carter with today's selections. One Thomas book and two Thomas videos. Yes, if you were wondering, he is still a Thomas fanatic!!
