Spring has finally arrived!

This past weekend, the family and I spent most of our time outdoors. We started our vegetable garden (more on that in an upcoming post), weeded the front flower beds, and we also went to the park. Liam loves having the freedom to roam around. And Maymont Park provides plenty of space for him to do so.

Maymont is also a great location for a budding photographer. They have a big petting zoo (Liam loves to see the cows and horses), an indoor nature center, dozens of wildlife exhibits, and an Italian, Japanese and butterfly gardens. After at least 3 different trips to Maymont, I was finally able to capture the tulips and trees in full bloom.

      Thanks, Mom. I’m not sure if he saw the bear this time around. It was hiding up in a corner.
