My dads sister Tina was in town for a bit. She is a fun aunt who loves get out and explore. She told me the Botanical Gardens were have some kind of scarecrow competition and invited the boys and I to come check it out. I count these kind of excursions as school time so it was a two-for ;)
My cousin Becky was able to join us to boot! We lucked out on the perfect fall day, the place was full of gorgeous autumn color.
The perfect outing until I asked Aden to stand next to these cattails...
...exactly one second after this picture, he fell in the water! He likes to tell people I pushed him in. (he changed with some clothes that were thankfully in the car and was promised a video game for his trouble)
Sometimes this homebody just needs to get out and see this beautiful place we live, thanks Aunt Tina!
