Fall at the Arboretum

I went to the arboretum yesterday with my friends Lisa, Jennifer and Abby.  Not that there is one photo of any of us to prove it!

There are 50,000 pumpkins, gourds & squash at the Dallas Arboretum.  I doubt there is a variety of any of those that wasn't represented...

White Pumpkins...


Big Fat Pumpkins...

Rows of pumpkins...

A pumpkin village...



A river and lake...

Technically, it was called Swan Gourd Lake...
The swans...

The various pumpkin huts represented different places from Cinderella.

The white pumpkin one was the ballroom...




This was inside the ballroom...the glass slipper...


The flower garden...

A flower...

I was a little disappointed that more mums weren't in bloom, but here were some that were...




This was one side of a little bridge.  There were misters watering ferns on the other side, but the mist was drifting under the bridge and made this side look very Halloween spooky...

After the arboretum, we went to Northpark and had lunch at Neimans.  Then I bought my birthday present at the mall (stay tuned for details).  After the mall, Abby & I went by a house in Dallas that always has the most fabulous holiday decorations.  Here are some of their Halloween decorations...



Then we made a stop by Gigi's and got some cupcakes!

We hit up a shopping center a little closer to my house for some Vera Bradley and Anthropologie shopping before eating dinner at Uncle Julio's while watching the World Series.

Woo-Hoo for the Texas Rangers pulling it out in the 9th inning for a perfect ending to a perfect Fall day!
