Classics at the arboretum - pioneer village
The boys had SO much fun playing farmers
The dirt was very tilled after they were done!

Checking out old farm equipment was fun!

Thirsty boys!

We had a great time last week checking out the pumpkin festival at the Arboretum. It is a great place to play in the pioneer village area & Texas town, as well as seeing the seasonal displays and flowers.

I am in awe of seeing big groups of monarchs. I was letterboxing a few weeks ago and serendipitously discovered a group of them in the trees nearby. Of course I was camera less except my phone, which I still can't find the software CD for computer transfer. It was cool though!

Our cheap membership at the arboretum ends in a month sadly. We had gotten major mileage out of it this year but would have to upgrade to a more expensive one this coming year and there is no fundage for that. So I am treasuring the memories and fun we've had there.

I'm pretty sure memberships are the greatest thing ever.

I wish we were closer to the Arboretum. I love it there. We might have to make at least one trip this fall to see the changing colors.

Awesome pictures, by the way!!!
