Our adventures used to include climbing on glaciers, driving on curvy roads to mountain tops, trying to communicate to people who do not speak English, learning new cultures, Army and German...now our adventures include trying to take care of three kiddos. Yesterday I made it to the pool for the first time this summer with all three kiddos. Not 5 minutes before we all jumped into the water, and HC was stung by a bee. I had to hand True off to a stranger, and ask another mama (stranger) to watch Annelise, so I could take care of HC. It was an adventure. How can I do this?
And Dave is great about turning all of our adventures into funny stories...thank goodness for Dave. Happy 601st post.

In early April we took the fam down to Callaway Gardens for a fun weekend away. This was our first time there as a family and it was beautiful weather and beautiful gardens.
We rented a little house outside the gardens, so we ended up just spending one full day there. The rest of the time we spent puttering around the complex where the house was. It had a little playground and a putt-putt course, and a pond with boats.
We also braved the fine cuisine of Pine Mountain...why is it that the food is usually LAME in these little towns? Just a random side note, but a year ago Dave and I spent a weekend away in North Georgia. There are tons of farms up there, beef farms, dairies, and other veggie farms, and those farmers drive all their stuff down to Atlanta to sell. No one up there wants to eat fresh grass fed beef, and fresh eggs...this doesn't make any sense to me. But, whatever. It is always an adventure eating in small towns.
In Callaway we visited the Butterfly Garden, and the girls went nutso. HC was wearing a flowered dress and there was a beautiful blue butterfly that landed on her tummy. She was so excited. Annelise, on the other hand, was batting the butterflies away, sweet Anna.
