Last week we took the kids to the Toledo Botanical Gardens. I can’t believe it was our first time since moving to Toledo! It may have been because I did not realize its free.
Well, we took a bunch of pictures with the posted plant names so we could remember things we’d like to use at home.
Here are a few.
Then we needed a little break to nurse the baby. So I found a shady spot.
The kids just got cute. But Penny Pie (in pink…she dresses herself) cracks me up.
Anyway, while I was nursing & when they were done being cute, they went exploring some more and found a stray kitten.
You see where the story is going? When I finished nursing JB, and rounded them up to continue our way through the gardens, it was hard to separate them from the kitten. First because they didn’t want to go. Then because she just kept following us! We let her for a while.
Saw some cool ideas for herb gardens.
But kitty was still following us! So I was going to carry her back to the “gems & rocks” house where they found her. Penny came running after me and said, “Daddy said we have to take her home!”
As it turns out, that’s not what Daddy said. He said, “Ask your mom.” But I’m sure you’ve guessed by now we took her home.
