We have been waiting for it to cool off a little so we can go visit the botanical gardens downtown, and lately it has been pretty cool. Except for the day we choose to actual go. Sunday was a beautiful day, but it was close to 90 degrees outside. We were burning up. In addition, everyone else had the same idea we did. The gardens were incredibly packed, it was hard to maneuver around the hundreds of strollers. The Great Pumpkin Festival was going on so I think that had a lot to do with how many people there were. The numerous amounts of pumpkins was a sight to see. There were sooo many pumpkins it was amazing. All the pumpkins lined the walk ways on both sides throughout the entire park. They also had a section with all of the many different kinds of squashes. I never knew half on them existed.
