a great day to be alive....

today we went to the missouri botanical gardens for the easter egg hunt.
i had never been there, alone.  the few times i have gone, i went with my mom. 
i put my big girl pants on and went.  i had talked in depth with my second momma, joyce at work yesterday.  she reminded me of other parking options, to get there with plenty of time, and just relax.  that is exactly what we did.
the weather was divine.  our girls have a great appreciation for nature and the beauty of it.  anne was swooning at the sight of all the tulips.  kate spotted a real snake in one of the flower beds.  she almost had cardiac arrest, but we got through it. we had a great time.
i mean a great time.  we left and i said ITS A GREAT DAY TO BE ALIVE! 
i took a million pictures....bare with me. 

just realized i was getting ready to enter tulip heaven!

i said....sit DOWN RIGHT THERE....anne thought to we go.  she isn't gonna stop with the camera.

tulips are my favorite.

she was in heaven.
