we have wonderful neighbors. one of which is beca, in the picture with maggie, who graciously agreed to babysit in exchange for chocolate chip cookies! what a deal! she not only babysits but gives maggie & mya and the other little neighbors lessons in gardening. most days, maggie asks if she can help ms. beca water her flowers....even if beca is no where to be found. maggie loves to water flowers. beca also lets them dig for worms, another recent passion of maggie's.
so beca babysat during the day, which might be the best kind of babysitting there is. as soon as we put abraham down for his morning nap, we headed out to the botanical gardens by. our. selves.
it was great to have no agenda except to walk around and enjoy the flowers. the gardens truly are amazing and i spent most of the time in the rose garden, saying "i cant believe it smells so good!" it was great to be on date and not get sleepy eyes or worry about staying out too late. we enjoyed every second of it!
