    By the way, I am very sorry to hear about your DH's grandmother. I hope the trip helped your DH feel better.

    Thank you about DH's grandmother. :hug: The trip did help get his mind off of it for a while. It couldn't have come at a better time.

    Thank you!!! :hug: I love my new camera.

    I"m here now. Just got back from a trip to Houston. We brought DS to his first Major League baseball game. We lasted about 1 hour and had to leave. He was CRANKY!!! :rolleyes1 Oh well, maybe next time. We did have a good time at the downtown Aquarium and the zoo the day before. :woohoo:

    So, as I said before, FJ had an idea to play "where's flat jordan".....you know, like "where's waldo"?? He took off and we started to find him in all sorts or inconspicuous places.

    We headed over the International Gateway bridge....

    Into France....

    On this day I skipped the Grey Goose slush martini since I was still feeling pretty good from the Octopus Juice. We just slowly walked around WS checking out all of the cool exhibits that were set up for the flower & garden festival. They had so many cool things that you could do with your yard. Little places for the kids to play and examples of how to set these things up. They had samples of what you could do with your garden, etc. It was great!! Here are pictures from these exhibits.....

    One of the many play area exhibits set up. I love the DuPont recycled rubber "mulch". You can use it for the playground or the flower garden!

    This chair would spin around. DH had to save DS because he had already lost control and couldn't stop it! LOL!!!

    Eventually we find ourselves in Japan. FJ was super excited to see the "mother land" and he went a little crazy in there! Here are the pic's from his adventures in Japan....

    A little Japanese surfing....

    Warrior toys....

    Anyone remember these?? Come on, sing along.....MONCHICHI, MONCHICHI, OH SO GOOD FOR ME...

    Meanwhile, FJ made a friend....

    Next we move on to America!!

    There was a concert going on at this time. It was either The Searchers or The Tokens.

    The music was good but we didn't stay. It was crowded and HOT! We moved a little further and came to another shaded area with more exhibits set up.....
    [​IMG]

    It was really cool how they incorporated the plants with the play areas. It was like the kids had their own secret hide outs or something. A big hit!!

    Going through another tunnel....

    Into another secret hideout with chairs carved from tree trunks....

    I thought this was clever.... A pizza slice shaped garden filled with everything to season a pizza with!!

    Great pictures again! Question: When you say it was HOT, how hot do you think it was? We're going in 10 days :-)banana: ) and I'm wondering what to expect. I'm in the Boston area and it's been 95 here the past 4 days, so I'm expecting about the same, but thought I'd check from someone who had been there fairly recently!

    It was great!!
    Yes he does. :rotfl2:

    :rotfl2:
    Thank you
    Play areas were way cool!
    I love it too.:goodvibes

    Thanks!
    I think it was around 92-94 all week. That's not unbearable for us since we also live in the south. It's just magnified by the cement and lack of breeze in a lot of places. We have agreed that next time we go when it's hot that we will spend time in the pool and do a water park!

    YIKES!!! :scared1:

    Wow Blue that sure was a super-sized update!:thumbsup2 LOVED all the pictures. Especially with FJ, he was a WELL traveled flat man, no complaining from him:rotfl: That spinning chair your DS was on is sooo dangerous, we have them at our local park and my poor DS went flying off and I was standing RIGHT next to him:confused3

    :rotfl: Just wait...I'm about to do another one! I have a little extra time today so I want to sort of catch up since I've been slacking.
    FJ was so much fun to travel with!
    I agree about that chair! All he did was sit on it. It was sort of on a little incline so it whipped around and he couldn't stop it. :rotfl2: DH had to run and grab it. He would have flown off if we didn't stop him. I've never seen those before.

    Thanks Rosie! I should have another one up soon.
    We did see the butterflies. It was great but there wasn't too many hatched just yet.
    FJ was so much fun to travel with this time.

    My senior year of college I worked at a community garden for my Community Service class. One of the parts of our project was the Pizza garden. So fun. (we also made lip balm, honey, hand salve, olive oil, and other natural products)
