Hopeland Gardens

We visited a beautiful park area this past week called Hopeland Gardens. We got to go there last summer when we were visiting and knew it was a spot we wanted to see again. It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen.

There was a nice size pond that was full of turtles swimming around. The girls had a ball watching the turtles swim up to the bridge to check us out. You would have thought they had hit the jack-pot when a baby turtle came swimming up!

Such amazing trees in this park! We were so thankful for the extra hands to help with the girls, they were too!

Daddy took some pictures of his brother's family as they needed an updated family picture. We can't get over how fast the kids have grown. The two oldest girls were teeny tiny flower girls in our wedding just a "couple" of years ago. Our nephew was just walking and the younger girl was growing inside her mom's belly!

This is a GREAT bunch of kids who are incredible cousins to my girls. They didn't bat an eye once about playing with or doting on our two littles all week. They pretty much spoiled our girls with all of the attention they received.

Our little family had a sweet time with them!

And I'm not sure but I don't think there is as intoxicating a scent as those gorgeous Magnolia trees in the South.
