Today to celebrate Mother’s Day the whole family went to Hunter Park to ride the train and have a picnic. The train is run by volunteers and only runs the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month. I was happy that Mother’s Day fell on a Sunday that it would be working. I figured with it being Mother’s Day the lines wouldn’t be too long (they weren’t so Tessa got to ride the train twice).
Time to ride the train! Tessa was super excited and kept signing “more” even though we hadn’t ridden it yet. Papa bought her a train conductor hat too! The ride was so fun and went all around the park. Tessa kept clapping and putting her arms out.
We then enjoyed a picnic under a tree. Tia Lindsey fed Tessa some fried chicken (just the chicken not the skin) and to my surprise she ate it! I have tried giving me chicken on mulitple occasions and she hasn’t touched it. I think she ate it because it was dark meat. She also enjoyed yummy watermelon Papa shared with her.
After some more playing we headed back to Gigi and Papa’s house so Tessa could nap. After her nap we took her in the jacuzzi. She loved riding in her boat and practicing swimming.
Such a great Mother’s Day with my favorite little girl!
