Summer in Gerogia so far has been extremely hot and sticky. Even though we are eight hours from Miami, the heat is so different. I miss the costal breeze, I miss the rainstorms that happened everyday that only last about 15mins and I miss the waterpark and our pool! We were there everyday.
Georgia is our home now and I always look for the best in everything. Before we moved here I googled stuff to do in Leesburg/ Albany I made Vida a summer bucket list, I know she's little and doesn't understand but this girl loves to have fun. In the morning when I'm getting her dressed, I tell her we are going to play with friends and she grabs her shoes and screams out of excitement. Like she knows exactly what I am saying, maybe she does? :)
So far on our bucket list we have made Popsicles. I puréed watermelon and strawberries with a little honey and froze that in Popsicle molds. So delicious and refreshing.
Here in Ga, they have a cute little Zoo called Chehaw zoo. It's tiny compared to the Miami Zoo and the Toronto Zoo where I have been but still fun and much cheaper.
We have been to the Planetaruim a lot!!! We love that place we walk around the museum and then head over to the Planetarium when the show starts.
The Planetaruim also has an outdoor train museum you can take a tour inside.
The Riveraquarium is our go to place when it is way too hot outside and I want Vida to run around to let some energy out. I love how the fish tanks are lower to the ground so kids can walk right up to the tanks and peek inside. I don't have to keep her in the stroller or hold her up to see. Her favorite is the tank with all the Coral Reef fish. Or in her mind all the Finding Nemo characters. She squeals in excitement.
When my sister in law and niece came to visit us from Tampa we took the girls to one of the summer movies. We watched the Nut Job. Vida fell asleep half way through.
The SPLASHPAD the best water invention ever. I don't have to worry about my kid drowning lol. We love going there to cool after we spend the day running errands. Sometimes I forget the pool bag and Vida goes in a diaper. It's so hot out she dries off quick.
