A Day in the New York Botanical Gardens

The New York Botanical Gardens was hosting a Chihuly exhibition this summer and I had so hoped to be able to go check it out.. but before I knew it summer had slipped through our fingers. So when I got an email telling me that the exhibition was going to to be there till the end of October I made sure we got to go check it out before then.

When we went for hajj we made some new friends with another couple from New Jersey and thought we'd invite them along.. get our kids to bond, their daughter brought along some of her friends and you know what they say.. the more the merrier. And since we were going in October there were pumpkins everywhere!!

So cool you guys got to see the exhibit:) And the kiddos looked like they had a lot of fun too!
Looks amazing! I kept meaning to go visit this exhibit but somehow we never made it. I really enjoyed the Chihuly Museum in Seattle last year.

We had the Chihuly exhibition at our botanical gardens here in STL and it was so beautiful. Some pieces were left behind, too so we are still enjoying them in our gardens! That pumpkin your son is on is HUGE!

It's amazing to think how much work went into making that glass and putting it all together. The artist must have arms of steel.
