Last weekend Sean and I took Taylor to Gardner Village. It's one of my very favorite places to go and we haven't been since last summer when Tay was much smaller. They've done a lot of construction and are renovating some of the shops. The walkways are wider now and more stroller friendly, which was wonderful.
Right away Taylor was so excited to see the pond and ducks everywhere. Some friendly (and very hungry) ducks waddled right up to us, I'm assuming thinking we had food for them. I finally gave in and threw them some Cheerios; Taylor seemed interested in feeding the ducks too, but decided he'd rather eat the cereal himself.
After wandering into all our favorite shops we went to the bakery for lunch. We got yummy sandwiches on their amazing bread. Taylor's lunch consisted of a plate of bread, turkey, chips, and pickles (yep, he's a toddler!). He loved spearing the pickles with a fork and feeding himself like a big boy.
When he was done he proceeded to dump the plate over his head, which was covered in pickle juice.
We were going to take him to the new petting zoo they have also, but by that time we were all tuckered out and in desperate need of naps. It was a fun day though, and we're planning to go back in October when they have all the witches out. If you've never gone, I highly recommend it!
