So I got up this morning and got the girls up for school and put DD2 on the school bus. Normal morning right?!! NOT!! As soon as the bus took off with her DD1 and I got in the truck and headed off to her school. She had a field trip today. I volunteered to chaperone simply because it was to the zoo and botanical gardens and I had never been to the botanical gardens here. So each parent was assigned a group of kids and I ended up with a really great group! I had 4 girls including DD1 and they listened and we all had a great time. We were bused to the zoo and then walked over to the botanical gardens. My feet are killing me especially since I had just started getting my ankles back to normal from Paris..oyyyyy!!!!
So let me share a few pics with you.....now some of these will be of backs of kids and that is basically because I refuse to put a picture of someone elses child on my blog without their permission...
As the tour guide was telling us all about how long it has been here in Heidelberg and I was getting totally fascinated with the history as soon as he said cocoa tree I lost all concentration and all I could think of was "chocolate? where?"! I know I have issues!
Now as much as I would love to share some pics of the cocoa tree, papaya trees,mango trees, banana trees and a few others of course what would happen but my camera fudged on me AGAIN!! Can you say new camera??!!!! It started saying memory card error which is what happened with our pics of Paris so I did not do what it said for me to do and I put the camera away to hopefully save what pics I did have on the card. Yes I did learn from my mistake and unfortunately it just meant no more pics for me!!!
Well the day went fabulous and other then my stupid camera flaking on me and my feet killing me I really enjoyed the whole thing!!
Did I mention that at the end of the tour of the botanical gardens they offered us some of the fruits from their trees....mmmmmmmmm we had fresh pineapple, mangos, cantaloupe, bananas, star fruit, avocado, peanuts and a little orange thing I have no idea what it is but I have had it before and it is very tart and I am not a fan!!
Any who thanks for reading and I hope maybe someone out there will be able to tell me what flower that is!!
Until next time...
A Bientot my friends!
