Maymont Park

Hey,

Yesterday we went to Maymont park with my cousins. We got there around 11:30 and left around 3:30. It was so much fun!

This is my cousin Leah and I in one of the many trees.

There was this one tree that was blooming. It was the prettiest thing in the park.

Here are a few pictures of the blooms.

This one is one of my favorites.

This is the Italian gardens where my Mom and Dad got married.

Selfie!!

 

This was the Japanese gardens. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to go over there. The moms could get to the gardens with the strollers. The kids went down long enough to see it.

Here are a few of random shots.

There were some awesome climbing trees there.

Well, that’s about it. It was really fun to see Leah and her family. Thank you for reading this and have a blessed day.

Christmas Town

Hey,

Last night my family and I celebrated my Papaw’s 70th birthday by going to Christmas Town at Busch Gardens! It was SO much fun!! There were over eight MILLION lights!! Here are some pictures that I took from the park. Some of them are kind of blurry.Β πŸ˜•Β We arrived at the park around 3:30 and left around 9:30. I provided a map below so you can track where we went.

img_7383
From left to right: Lily (my cousin), Abby (another cousin), Me, Maddox, Matthew, and Micah. This was “The North Pole”.

There was a 50 foot christmas tree with so many lights that correlated with the music. Β This place is called O’ Tannnenbaum.

In “The North Pole” they had a “snow” machine that blew out bubbles. All of the little kids LOVED it.

Has anyone else noticed how creepy this elf looks? These next three pictures are from New France.

Then, as we were leaving we saw some more lights.

img_7489

img_7492
Sorry, this one is a little blurry.
img_7499
This was the most BEAUTIFUL thing ever!!!! My favorite light arrangement in the park. πŸ˜€

 

We had so much fun at Busch Gardens! I think it was my ONLY time I have been to Busch Gardens and not ride anything. πŸ˜€ Thank you for reading this and have a blessed day.

The Natural Bridge and the Va Safari

Hey,

A few weeks ago my Memaw and Papaw took me and my brothers to the Natural Bridge and the VA Safari. We stayed there for two days and went home the next. The N.B. (Natural Bridge) is so big!! You see the pictures on the internet but you’ll never know how HUGE it is unless you go there.

 

img_3373
It is so pretty!!

OBX Beach Trip! Part 2

Hey,

I just want to start by saying how sorry I am for not getting this post out sooner.

In this post I am going to show you the pool, sunrise pics, and some other random shots.

This is the boys in the pool. I was taking pics on the second so I wouldn’t get splashed. πŸ˜€

Another Baseball Post :D

Hi,

We just recently went to a Richmond Flying Squirrels baseball game. The Flying Squirrels were playing the RiverCats, it was AWESOME!!! πŸ˜€ We sat on the third baseline, all the way down, first row. My Uncle Mike treated us to an amazing ball game. We even got cotton candy, peanuts, and soda. It was so fun, I have never sat so close to the field in my life. The Flying Squirrels won 3-2. It was about 11:30 by the time we got home. We were all very tired.

IMG_2734
This was the stadium.
IMG_2744
My beautiful cousin was there with us.
IMG_2800
LET’S PLAY BALL!!!!!!

 

IMG_2742
This is how it started…

 

There was a “contest” at the ballpark. These guys had to bounce on their horses to the finish line.

IMG_2743
And this is how it ended. πŸ˜€

Everyone was all right. Apparently someone really wanted a shirt.

IMG_2755
Here comes Nutsy!! (The mascot).

IMG_2789
Pitching Change!
IMG_2824
After the game.
IMG_2827
All of the Flying Squirrels lined up at the end and high fived. πŸ˜€

Thank you for reading this post, and I promise I am not trying to annoy you with baseball posts. πŸ˜€

Baseball With Dad Part 2

Hello,

We have a park near our house and it has a little league field in it! We went to the park one VERY hot afternoon and played with dad.

IMG_2498

If you look carefully you will see our drinks near the fence.

IMG_2499

IMG_2501

The boys loved being outfielders.

IMG_2502

IMG_2507

Taking a break.

IMG_2505

They had REAL bases that you can run on.

IMG_2510

IMG_2512 (1)

We hung our bats on the fence because there was no were else to put them. πŸ™‚

After a while I decided to look around the rest of the park.

IMG_2513

IMG_2514

I love this one because it looks like the flower is glowing.

IMG_2525

IMG_2531

When I came back they were playing on the playground, no surprise. πŸ˜€

IMG_2555

IMG_2557

They loved it!!

Going To The Beach!!! :D

Hello,

The reason I have not posted in such a long time is we went to Myrtle Beach SC. It was so much fun! I could NOT go the beach without taking my camera and taking pictures. πŸ™‚ Β So here are some pics from last week.

IMG_2232

This was our condo. We stayed on the tenth level (there were 20 of them total).

 

IMG_2248

This was our view.

I said there would be more baby pics, so here they are.

IMG_2262
Matthew was trying to get him to smile.

IMG_2265

Back to the beach. πŸ™‚

IMG_2276 (1)

IMG_2285 (1)

They had horseshoe crabs there that you could touch and pick up.

IMG_2286 (1)

Also there were sharks that you could touch.

IMG_2290

Just one of the many attractions there.Β Of course we had to go in. πŸ™‚

IMG_2291

IMG_2300

IMG_2299

Helpful tips.

IMG_2304 (1)

This is a cool shot that I got of anΒ eel. Look at that adorable little girl in the background.

IMG_2313

IMG_2315

There was a shark tunnel, it was awesome. They even included a moving walkway.

IMG_2324

I snapped this as soonΒ as the lady in front of me pointed to a shark.

IMG_2316 (1)

IMG_2321 (1)

IMG_2330

There was also a stingray touching area, which was cool. From left to right: Me, Micah, and Matthew. (Dad took the pic).

IMG_2335

IMG_2337We HAD to take a picture of “Dory”.

That concludes our aquarium trip. If you ever go to SC I would suggest that you go to Ripley’s Aquarium.

IMG_2361

The last day we were at the beach, me and dad got up early and went out to see the sunrise.

IMG_2362

I think this one is cool because of the waves and the sunlight.

IMG_2369

IMG_2372

Then we had to stop because the sun was going behind the clouds. Thank you for reading this post. (I know it was long). I really enjoy doing these posts and I will continue to do so. πŸ™‚
