smelling good...

This past week on Tuesday my wife and I decided to do a little sight seeing so we went to the Botanical Garden in Midtown. It had probably been 15 years since I have been there (it was my high school prom) and my wife has never been. After going all I can say is... "shame on us!!!"

A bunch of pretty flowers might sound a little boring, but it was anything but. My wife and I enjoyed strolling through the various gardens and into the Convervatory. All along we way we saw the latest exhibit... "Big Bugs & Killer Plants." The best part of the gardens might have been the children's garden. Even though my wife and I do not have any kids yet, we figured we would check it out in case it might appeal to my nephew. Well, it passed our test and my nephew gave it a try this afternoon. My mom says he loved it... especially splashing in the flower fountain!

So, if you are looking for something to do you might try out the Botanical Garden... especially if you have not been there in recent years. You will be pleasantly surprised!

Have a great weekend!


P.S. Happy Father's Day to all the dads!
