{fall fun} nybg haunted pumpkin garden

October was such a fun month. There were so many events and activities going on in our area it was hard to decide what to do. We didn't want to cramp our weekends so we picked just one or two events to do with the boys.

One of those events was the New York Botanical Garden Haunted Pumpkin Garden. The boys had a great time, especially G who couldn't stop screaming "mama mira" {mama look!} every one or two steps, pointing at all the carved pumpkins that adorned the Everett Children's Adventure Garden. Even L had a good time admiring all those little pieces or art. 
That weekend they had in display the biggest pumpkins we've ever seen! Some were bigger than G! And of course G wanted to climb them all.
We were in time for their Creepy Creatures show which L loved since he likes all things reptiles. We had some special fun when the trainer called M to the front and put a snake on his neck. Did I mention M is scared of snakes? It was funny!

After all things pumpkin were seen on our way out we walked through the Japanese Gardens exhibit. The boys also climbed up huge rocks and ran around. It was a bit chilly but still a beautiful day to be outside.

Later at home M and I were looking at the NYBG map and realized we just saw a very small part of the garden  although to us it felt like we've walked a lot and covered more. We've been a couple of times before but it seems we always wander around the same spots. The garden is huge and such and amazing place. I think it's time to explore more.
