Powell Gardens

I am going to start sharing more of my daily adventures and activities, as I find inspiration from all of them.  This week, Adalyn and I spent a beautiful afternoon at “local” Powell Gardens.  It’s just a 35 minute drive for an afternoon escape.  The Fall flowers were just gorgeous.  I loved the color ensemble circling the fountain below.
Adalyn sat down just long enough for a photo opp!
The fountains, ponds and lakes are picturesque.  The lily pads were just gorgeous!
Overlooking the lake is a beautiful chapel, a great wedding ceremony location.
If you have time in the next couple weeks, I highly recommend you take a moment to enjoy Powell Gardens as the leaves change colors.  It’s absolutely breathtaking.  For more ideas of things to do with kids this summer, click here.

The Fairy Houses and Forts exhibit is up at Powell Gardens!  We recently visited with family and Adalyn loved checking out all of the forts.  Enjoy a few of our highlights.

The forts were scattered throughout the property and came in all different shapes, sizes and yielded different activities.

Above, the mirrored fort also offered a great tunnel!  Adalyn admired her reflection – and new sunglasses.

Watch out of this pirate on Skeleton Island!

While she didn’t quite grasp the concept of taking her photo in the fairy, she sure had fun!  

Hurry!  It ends October 7, 2012!
