Park Action

We stopped by two parks on the way home from Atlanta a couple of weekends ago.  No reason but to kill time.

We'd eaten lunch right before and took some bread to feed the ducks.

Most of the time when M smiles for pics, it involves one eye being closed like this one.

She still  loves carrying a stick around anytime we're outside. 

We ended up at Noccalula Park that day, too (if you're not familiar with the Noccalula legend, it's about a beautiful Indian princess who jumped to her death to avoid marrying a man her father had chosen for her -- she was in love with someone else).  As sad as that sounds, the park is actually filled with beautiful gardens, many traces of history, and recreation. 

Checking out the waterfall (stick in hand).

Train Ride

An old pioneer village. 

Checking out the napping lion (stick in hand).

M has been to Noccalula before with my in-laws (it's in my husband's hometown), and I'd been a few times, too.  But I don't remember the petting zoo or pioneer village.  It was cool seeing something new.  They're putting the finishing touches on a new playground area, so I can see many Noccalula days in the future.

Hope everyone's having a great week.  I'll have another post up for Friday.
