Hand, Foot, & Mouth has overtaken my child with a vengeance. Forget the Benadryl + Mylanta paste, I need an exorcist. The whole situation is sad and pitiful and heartbreaking and there is not enough wine in my house to properly cope.
But! But! There are pumpkin patch photographs that must be plastered on yet another form of social media... so indulge me as I recall happier times, will you?
Those familiar with Dallas will recognize the Arboretum's famous Pumpkin Village. For all the non-locals, imagine your typical pumpkin patch on crack. My handy dandy members' brochure boasts 50,000 pumpkins and gourds on display, but my
very poor estimation skills would have guessed at least three times that many. Regardless, it's a true sight to behold. Combine the festive village with the current Chihuly exhibit and you have yourself a bona fide Outing.
Since the Arboretum is within walking distance of our house, we invested in a family membership... hence our multiple photo ops.
Our first trip this season was with one of my moms' groups on "Tiny Tot Tuesdays"... which basically translates to "this is going to be an even bigger racket than usual." As we already know, L was not entirely impressed with her premier Pumpkin Village voyage...
Unless this pony is headed home with us, I'd rather hang with Petey
I guess we're really doing this...
A mere three days later, my parents joined E, L, and I for even more pumpkins and Chihuly gazing...
Chihuly's works are incredible... If you're in the area within the next 19 days, I highly recommend to take a gander... and perhaps snap a few shots amongst the pumpkins while you're at it!
