On their way home from wintering in Florida, Granny Great and Grandpa Great swung through Tennessee for a couple of days to stay with us. Corey had to work, so the kids and I decided to take GG & GG to the Cheekwood Botanical Gardens to explore.
The sculpture trail was a big hit with the little adventurers.
These sculptures are "windharp chairs". The kids were a little confused by them.
You could walk into this sculpture, which features a hole in the ceiling of a round building. Keeping the kids away from the black sand in the middle was quite a feat.
Clowning around on the back patio of the Cheekwood mansion.
Charlotte wanted to live in this little structure.
Granny Great was steering Peter away from some crazy wet mud that he had his eye on.
When we got back to the car, Peter declared his love for the Big Red Van.
We stopped for lunch on the way home and Granny Great kept Charlotte entertained by drawing the outline of a person or animal and having Charlotte fill in the features. These are the things an experienced great grandparent can teach a lazy mom like me!
More fun to come!
