Josie's 1st outing since surgery

Between the recent snow storms and Josie's surgery and recovery, the Mommy has been going absolutely stir crazy at home. This afternoon, we headed to one of our favorite places in Grand Rapids...Frederick Meijer Gardens. Each December, they feature decorated trees from around the world, as well as an amazing miniature train display. Emma brought her good friend along and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

The key to dressing Josie and her cast for outerwear has been to put her in a winter coat that is nearly 3 sizes too big. It's ridiculous looking, but it works for our West Michigan weather.

The best part of our visit at the Gardens was the miniature trains. Josie would have stayed all day watching the trains.

Josie's train obsession has motivated us to set up our own train at home this evening. Stay tuned for more train pictures. Only 3 days until Christmas!!

That looks like a wonderful outing, and Miss Josie seems to be quite at ease with her cast! I'm glad you found something that works for the cold weather outside!

What fun! Madi absolutely loves trains, too. I know you were concerned about how to dress Josie with her cast. I'm glad you found a way.

Looks like fun! So glad you had a good day out with the girls. Josie looks like she is recovering well.
