Fun With the Hardens

This past Sunday, we headed out to the Dallas Arboretum (for the first time in my life) with the Hardens. Our good friend Dyana let us borrow her family season pass so we were all able to get in FREE!!! And parking was even free that day. Saved us a ton of money! It's $12 for adults, $8 for kids and I believe parking is usually around $7.

It was a beautiful morning, nice and cool. Sophia and Atticus (and the dads) had a ton of fun playing chase.

Sure was nice having the dads there to act as handlers.

The fog....just kidding. It was really just the sprinkler system. It was more of a mist but the way the light was hitting it, it looked like fog.


They also have a lot of water features there, this being one of them.

Pure joy!!!

And they had a ton of hills to run down.

They had this fairytale/princess theme for some of their displays. So they had these huge story books for each princess along with some type of display to go along with it. Did someone say princess? It was right up my little princess' alley.

Sophia and Atticus got to sit in Cinderella's carriage. Unfortunately, getting them to look at the camera at the same time in under 3 minutes (they had a time limit and a line) was next to impossible. Plus, this random toddler, hopped right on in and wouldn't leave.

Here is one of the houses made of pumpkins and gourds.

And here are the best buds hugging!

And Sophia even got a peck on the cheek. Or almost.

I managed to get a few of Sophia with some pumpkins. By the way, according to the news there is supposedly a shortage of pumpkins. I found 'em! They're all at the Dallas Arboretum.

And the outing ended happily ever after with naps had by all (except for the dads, their choice).
