The Week Ahead 6/13/13

Well, we were as prepared as you can be when taking a road trip with a 5 year.  At least that is what I thought.  My darling child got sick so we will postponing our trip.  Everyone is very sad. #KidsRoadTrip has been temporarily postponed.

On to happier things,  I give you my pick of the week; Paradise Cove Splash Park at CB Smith in Pembroke Pines.  It is probably my favorite local water park and perhaps a trip here will make me feel a little better about missing our trip.

I have to remind myself sometimes how lucky we are to have so much to do here in South Florida.  I could have found more, but simply ran out of time!

The Great Scarecrow Exhibit at Flamingo Gardens

Okay, so we headed out to the Flamingo Gardens for The Great Scarecrow Exhibit on Saturday.  It was so nice to walk around the Gardens in the finally cooler South Florida weather!  What a fun idea!  Flamingo Gardens’ patrons build their own scarecrows and enter them into the contest.  All the scarecrows are  kept on exhibit for the whole month of October.  There were scary ones, traditional ones and even one that used recycled materials in a sort of modern art kind of way.  My 2 year old made it her mission to get her picture taken with each of the Scarecrows that will be on exhibit till the end of the month.
A few updates on the Gardens, the Garden Shop in the front courtyard is closed as is the Fruit Shipping Store and the Snack Bar.  The Snack Bar inside the Gardens next to the Flamingo Exhibit is still open as is the large Gift Shop.
I would love to go to the evening Halloween program, Beware the Lair of the Swamp Witch however the flyers say that it is recommended for 12 years and older, so that leaves us out.  Let me know if you go and post a comment here about it for us.
The gardens will be doing a trick or treat event, Story Time with the Good Witch  for everyone Halloween weekend, which looks like fun.  I will try to get there, but it is a very busy weekend for us.
