This weekend we went to FDR State Park in Pine Mountain and stayed in a cabin.
My parents were also there this weekend, in a cabin where the smoke alarm started alerting them to a dying battery at 2:30 a.m. the first night.
Aren’t they lucky?!
Anyway, we made the reservations months ago, so when the forecast told me it was practically going to flood this weekend, I was a bit concerned about what the heck we were going to do.
But I shouldn’t have worried.
I don’t know if you know this, but rain makes puddles.
Know who loves puddles?
Yeah, he really, really, really does.
He also loved about a million other things about this weekend. Here’s how it looked…
Then we headed to Callaway Gardens. Did you know it’s free in January? I didn’t either. But it is, which was beyond awesome for us.
We took Tom to the Butterfly House first. I always loved it when I was a kid and so did Tom. He said “butterflies” about 1,045 times (guesstimating) while we were there. And a side note, we headed back here Saturday too, because when he woke up that morning he asked for “more butterflies?” and I cannot deny him nature.
There is also a children’s garden outside where they have grown the plants/trees/bushes to make a little playhouse basically. I was kind of in love with it. It felt like The Secret Garden! (Oh, Dickon…)
We had a wonderful weekend! I began to worry right before we left that I had too much to work on at home and maybe planning this little trip was a bad idea — but that was wrong. This was perfect. I think it was good for all of us to get away and do something together. I loved it so much. The park was pretty empty and there was so much for Tom to do — it couldn’t have been better. I can’t wait to do it again next year!
Hope y’all had a wonderful weekend too! LOVE!
