A fun day at Meijer Gardens

Jim and I (and the kids) received a membership to Meijer Gardens from my parents.  I love Meijer Gardens- it's so nice to walk around and let the kids run.  They  have a fun kids area with a big tree house, water toys (for summer), sand pit for digging, etc.  I took the kids on Saturday with Nonna, Grandma JiJi, Oma, and Grandpa (too bad Jim had to work!).  A great time was had by all!

Except maybe Lucia . . . "why are we here?"

Ethan loves the Gardens- he actually looked in my direction for the picture!  That never happens anymore!

Once she got out of her stroller, Lucia warmed up to Meijer Gardens.  

Ethan pumping water- Grandma JiJi had to help him get it started. 

Ethan and Nonna

Lucia and Mamma- she was trying to wiggle out of my lap so she could walk around more- "down peas, down peas!"

Lucia assumes her Sumo pose as she gets ready to cross the wobbly bridge! 

Lucia loved these big blue eggs!

Oma, Ethan, and Nonnna made it all the way to the top of the hill. 

Lucia loves being put back in the stroller after tasting freedom. 

About 2 seconds after we pulled out of Meijer Gardens, Lucia was asleep!  It was a fun outing, I can't wait to take more advantage of our membership!

Looks like a great time! Luca just gets on his belly when he is going to cross one of those bridges!

I didn't know you had a membership, too! Now we can all go whenever we are in town.
