Fun with Aunt Katherine!

My sister Katherine came to visit for Spring Break and it was so much fun to have her around! When we got to Austin, we went to try Terra Burger to grab a bite to eat while Merritt played on the playscape. After lunch, the day was so beautiful, we went to the Arboretum to visit the cows and feed the ducks, turtles, geese, and fish. We went through a package of hot dogs buns - hungry, hungry animals! The next day we went to the Austin Nature Center. Here is Aunt Katherine and Merritt looking at the turtles - I am not sure which one of them wants to take a pet turtle home with them more? Merritt wanted to hang on the 'monkey bars' {I think it is supposed to be the rib cage of a dinosaur} at the entrance of the Dinosaur Digging Exhibit. We took turns and here is Katherine lifting up Merritt so that she could reach the top!
By the end of Katherine's visit, Merritt had really connected with Katherine. Merritt read her night time books with her, shared her goldfish {this is a big deal!}, and even cried for Katherine not to leave. Merritt and I hope Katherine gets a chance to make another visit real soon - or maybe maybe we can visit her Boston {when it stops snowing!}.
