This Memorial Day my parents came into town. On Saturday we had Carolyn, Wayne and my parents up for dinner. Will had a great time with all of the attention. His Great Aunt Caroline taught him how to make noise while she patted her hand on his mouth. It made a lovely oooh, ooh, ooh, noise and Will thought that was pretty darn cool.
On Sunday Dad and Joan kindly babysat Will while Chris and I went to dinner and a movie. On the way home from the movie, I realized that we had undergone a role reversal. I used to come to DC to visit the parents and watch Jack and Carrie while they went out. Now, they come see me and watch Will :) I definately got the better end of the detail now.
The next day we went to the Florida Museam of Natural History. It is a pretty good museam for a city the size of Gainesville. We actually go there pretty frequently.
This time we went primarily to the Butterfly Gardens. Now if you are ever in Gainesville, you need to go to the Gardens. The landscaping is gorgeous and the butterflies are everywhere. They will even come and land on you. This is a tree nymph on Dad.
We weren't able to use the stroller in the gardens so we carried Will (all 21 lbs of him). We were going to take turns, you know, share the load...but then Dad took his turn. That was it. Dad carried him for the rest of the trip.
