HOORAY FOR HALLOWEEN!! Today we took a trip to The New York Botanical Garden. This was me and the girls third time there. It was Big Al's second and my husband's first time. I really wanted to make this trip last week when the BronxMama.com Meetup went, but today worked out better.
A rare event happen. My husband was off from work and Big Bea was with us too. When these Saturdays happen....we have to get out and do something.
Given the opportunity of the entire family together...my Cool Culture Family Pass was talking to me..."Use me before I expired on Sunday!" It whispered to me...lol So for the last time this Cool Culture season we got some culture. We headed to Halloween Hooray! Pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere. Giant ones, little ones, fake ones, real ones and one that was a house. It was amazing!
The kids enjoy every drop of Halloween at NYBG. The especially loved the giant pumpkin that was being curved by Scott Cully. He is try to break his record for curving the largest pumpkin. He is doing an awesome job. I can't wait to see it when it is done. I have some great picture of his work up until today on my Facebook page.
My favorite part of the day was when we were walking passed the Discovery Center in the Everett Children's Garden. Big Al took his arm and wrapped it over Big Bea's shoulder. I quickly pulled out my camera and snapped the picture above. What a joyous moment! I was so happy I wanted to cry. Him showing affection is amazing. Big Bea was shocked the most.
That movement it made all my hard work worth it. Affection doesn't come easy to those with the disabilities that Alex has.
NYBG was still very sensory friendly even with the large crowd, bright orange pumpkins and the Fordham University football game taken place across the street. I can't wait to go back for the Train Show.
