Mostly a photoblog

Nice day at the botanical gardens

First time really exploring the gardens. Some of them are formal, but there’s also quite a bit of area dedicated to trails through forest and prairie. Very nice birthday present to spend some time here with Arlene and the kids!

Wer’e now on our way to the pumpkin patch for our annual visit to commune with pumpkins, corn mazes, apple cider, and halloween costumes. Last year it was freezing cold and wet. This year, it’s about 80 degrees — much more pleasant!

I’ll add some pics when we get home later today.

    Ok — added some pics from the Pumpkin patch and the also from the botanical gardens in the photo albums section on the right.  We got lost in the corn maze, Julianna won first place in the pumpkin patch costume contest (check out the photo albums for pics), and we got 6 pumpkins.  Took an hour and a half to get home due to construction on US-23, but a small price to pay for some good fun.
