So, anyway, I decided to punish my children by taking them out in 110 degree heat this weekend! No, really, I clearly did - it has been HOT here!! I have been dying to take the kiddos to Cheekwood Botanical Gardens this summer. One, because its so beautiful and there are flowers and trees everywhere. Two, because they have had an exhibit opened that I have wanted to show the kids. Treehouses: Great Works of Literature - "Treehouses focuses on great works of literature with whimsical and traditional Treehouses in the landscape at Cheekwood. "
In a sense, its a bunch of cool, different treehouses scattered across the gardens for the kiddos to climb on. It would have been super fun, had it not been for the heat. I tried to get there right when it opened, and we packed a picnic lunch, but it was still pretty hot. The good news? Where there are flowers there are sprinklers! So, they also got to have some water play and went home naked. Ahhh, the joys of being a babe in the summertime :)

Also, Mom and my sister Leslie came in town. Leslie has moved back to Knoxville from Dallas to take a job as a buyer for Altar'd State boutiques. (Super cute stuff - for those local, there is one at the Avenues in Murfreesboro) So, Saturday afternoon we went and did some shopping. I bought a couple of dresses, a top, and some candles. Highly recommend their cute clothes!

Later, Les, Jake and I went to finally see Rock of Ages. For those that keep up, I am obsessed with musicals. We saw Rock of Ages in November on Broadway and I fell in love. It is fun, fun fun. Nothing to get moved by or inspired by. Just great fun. And the movie was no exception. I highly recommend. Russel Brand is hysterical, and Tom Cruise rocks. Sorry :)
