Mondays in Memphis with The Baker Team

Ever think there is nothing to do on Mondays?  Well you can always workout!  Memphis has wonderful parks, the green line, and many workout studios about town.  I am lucky enough to work in an awesome office where they bring in Ashley Berryhill twice a week to do yoga classes right in our office!  Thanks RE/MAX Real Estate Experts!  It is a great class and I love it because my husband and niece join me as well!  Even if your office doesn’t have a yoga class, believe me, there are plenty of workout places, trials, etc. for you to always have something to do on Mondays in Memphis!

Mondays in Memphis with The Baker Team

This week we decided to visit My Big Backyard at the Botanic Gardens with my nieces.  This place is SO fun!  There are so many interactive things for kids (and adults) to do here!  This is an educational and hands on experience of nature for children.  You can learn about birds, plants, flowers, and getting back to nature.  Kids can play instruments made out of pots, pans, pipes, and wood.  You can draw pictures on easels in an artist inspired nook in the trees.  You can hang laundry, swing on swings, have a picnic, etc.  Mondays are also Mud pie Mondays where kids can make mud pies and leave them out to dry where the fairies will gather them at night.  So cute!  We had so much fun and took so many pictures that I could not include them all here!  Visit our facebook page at The Baker Team to see the rest of our adventures!  There is so much to do here, you have to visit!

Mondays in Memphis with The Baker Team

This Monday we decided to visit T.O. Fuller State Park.  Mary had driven through there before but I had never been.  What a great place tucked away off of Third St. and Mitchell!  There are four pavilions that can be rented out for family functions, 35 picnic tables and grills located throughout, restrooms, volleyball nets, playgrounds and basketball courts!  There is an Olympic sized swimming pool that is open from early summer through labor day (though not open on Mondays and Tuesdays)!  There are also campgrounds in the park that range from primitive camping, to tents, to RV hook ups.   They are currently building an Environmental Interpretive Learning Center that will serve as an outdoor classroom for schools in the Memphis and Shelby County area which is very cool!  There is also the Chucalissa Indian Village on site but sadly it is not open on Mondays.  Doing some research when I got back to the office, I also learned that T. O. Fuller State Park was the first state park open for African Americans east of the Mississippi River.  This state park is not only full of interesting history, but a great place to visit and have fun in the present!

Mondays in Memphis with The Baker Team

For years we have driven by this raised building in the middle of a bunch of fields at the Agricenter and never really known what it was.  This Monday, we decided to stop and find out!  Turns out it is the Agricenter/ Ducks Unlimited Wildlife Observation Tower.  There are fabulous binoculars that you can use to look over the fields and try and identify different types of birds.  There are pictures and information on the various birds that you might see.  Mary and I had a great time looking for Canadian Geese and the American Wigeon!  Of course Mary had to be sassy and tell me that since I was short I could use the kiddie binoculars! Hahaha!  Next time you are near the Agricenter, you should stop by the observation tower and see what kind of birds you can spot!
