WHAT A DAY: October 26, 2014

Melissa and I are back for another fun adventure "Bootiful" 
at Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens.

A pumpkin decorating competition going on when you walked in.
I voted for the Popcorn :); however Olaf was tempting.

The new portion of the Gardens was also open.  "Lost Hollow" is catered towards children, but still neat and beautiful for all to see.
Creativity was all around and even in the guard rails.

This stuff was like cotton candy goodness for the eyes.

Despite the 80 degree weather, I opted not to get completely dowsed by the water display...
and simply continue sipping my handcrafted root beer.  Melissa endulged in the cider and beer sampling which was not to my taste buds' liking.

WHAT A DAY: October 19, 2014

Oh, how I love a cool, sunny day in the South ...with the leaves starting to change...
it only means 1 thing:
It's time for the MAIZE MAZE!!

This year was a baseball theme and just as fun as past years.

From all the years growing up in Nebraska, I have never seen such beauty of a flower growing around corn that was most of my "fun" pictures for the day.

A man in a kilt giving orientation?!? 

7 acres!!
Why, YES I fried oreos it was for me.
The Stumptown Tractor Show was also going on which is why I selected this weekend.
Sure was nice to see some of home especially the John Deer and lil red tractors.

And then it was only $1 to take back a little bit of home.
