Mommy date day!

We've been so busy lately, especially this week, that I decided to spend a special morning out with Emma today. She did a great job playing by herself while I got things ready. We headed out to the car and I grabbed her for a quick picture. Mid-photo she spotted an airplane...

There was a huge accident on Rt. 1 which clogged up 13 south from Middletown this morning, so we ended up taking the scenic route south, which Emma enjoyed because she got to see a helicopter dusting crops. We finally made it to Willey's!

Willey's is one of our favorite places to walk around, especially when the weather is so nice. Emma loved the fountains,

smelling the flowers,

and was tickled to death by the giant turtle!

We splashed through some little puddles!

Emma loved looking at ALL the tomatoes!

We sampled some watermelon - yum!

After we left Willey's we headed to Odessa for a picnic lunch! Emma helped by carrying our lunch bag.

We enjoyed sandwiches,
yum!

raspberries and a plum,

Emma loves raspberries (I do too!)

And a special treat - juice with lunch!

What a cutie!

Mommy's helper!

Our final stop was to the library! We picked out a bunch of new books and a train movie. Emma also got to enjoy one of her favorite books at the library, the giant picture book about trucks!


It was a wonderful morning making memories with each other! I hope that we'll be able to take advantage of the few weeks left before little brother shows up to enjoy some more sweet Emma/Mommy time!

It's amazing how many fun (and free!) things there are to do around here if you're a little creative about it. Adrian and I always want to go places, but we can never think of anywhere. Next time, we'll try Willy's and the Odessa park.
