Gingerbread "Adventures"

A friend and I visited the Bontanical Gardens on one of the coldest days of the year, but that didn't stop us from trying to take in as much as we could while we were there. The "Gingerbread Adventures" in the children's garden seemed worth a look.

They look friendly, don't they?
The garden may be lush and bursting with color in the spring and summer, but in the winter, with no snow, it's a bit bleak. Lots of rocks and roped paths, with a few Christmas ornaments and some cut out gingerbread figures dotting the landscape. I stared at these two for a moment until my friend turned around and asked what I was looking at.

I stared a bit longer, then said, "Is that one pointing a canon at us?"

It's a light. Or so they'd like us to think! ;) - Gives a whole new meaning to the words "Gingerbread Adventures!"

What a fun place to be able to go - - even in the winter! It's all snow and ice here and I would much rather be at Gingerbread Adventures than here right now :)

With a canon pointed at you?! ;)

It was in the low teens that day. AND windy! It was a funny day. We had a good time. The entire place was pretty barren though, except indoor exhibits, which is what we'd really gone to see. (I always want to live in indoor rain forests. Not sure how I'd like the real thing!)

Violent ginger bread people! Who knew? ;)

RIGHT?! Lol! We both stared at that one and laughed for a while! The whole day was pretty funny. Nothing like visiting a Botanical Garden and taking an outdoor tram tour which explains how beautiful the plant life is - in May and June...

I'm disappointed.
I moved yesterday. In my fridge I had stored 3 eggs in a package. Expiration date; August 21st.

They were not furry. Not slimy. They hadn't exploded.
Experiment failed :(

My condolences.

I'm not sure how old mine were. Maybe you should aim for a year ;)

Did you crack one open? It might still be "stink bomb out the window" worthy :)

Anny said...

Hah, I will do that next, although I'll make sure it's in a contained thing, not almost open in my fridge.
And no, I most certainly did NOT crack one, ewwww :P
