Botanical Gardens

I was determined to get out of the house today!  The weather here has been cloudy and chilly and not weather  I want to get myself or two kids out in.  It has been SO depressing.  I just want some sun and some warm and I want it to stay that way for more than two days!  I am sorry to complain especially to those in the midwest and north where I know it could be a lot worse.  I am just so grumpy lately and then only thing I can think to blame it on is the lack of sunshine and warmth!
So, with all of that said we went to the Botanical Gardens here in Birmingham.  It is free and a pretty place to walk around.   Jonas LOVED walking/running around and looking at the fountains and streams and he loved the dessert room with cactus/cacti? growing.
Tinzley had to have her eyes on Jonas the whole time.  She craned her neck around the stroller if he was behind us and she squealed and laughed as she watched him run ahead of us.
Like I said it has been a little dreary so there was not a ton of stuff blooming but enough to make me think spring has to be on its way right?
