Walk at Shaw's Arboretum.......
















































































Let me preface this post with the fact that Margo is on new medicine! It is doing wonders for her mood and eye contact. She is a different little girl. Many of her OCD habits have faded away.....YEA! That is a really good thing:) On the down side, she is hungry all of the time. Constantly, continually, never stopping! In the past two months she has gained one fifth of her total body weight.....not good! My daughter has her on a diet, per the doc, and we are now making her take a walk each day. Today we visited the Beautiful Shaw's Arboretum in Gray Summit Missour! It is owned by the Missouri Botanical Gardens and has walking pathes that are spendid. We took a 1 1/2 mile walk through the wildflower path.......simply beautiful. So peaceful and serene...............Carrie said, It feels like Little House on the Prarie.....and she was right. Here are a few pics from our picnic and walk. Hope you can enjoy the flowers as we did:)

Wow, what beautiful photos, you can almost smell the flowers. I am so excited to hear that Margo is doing so well,hopefully her weight problem will work itself out, walking will definitely help and she has such a wonderfully supportive family to keep her on track!

What a great place for a walk. I could get really distracted by all those beautiful flowers. Glad to hear the new med is helpling Margo so much.
