I was so happy that Michael and I got a chance to go to the Arboretum in Arcadia on Tuesday. I have wanted to go there since March, but it is only free on the third Tuesday of each month. I knew we wouldn't be able to go next month because Michael will have just started working on production for the goat movie by then, and in November we will be busy with the movers boxing all of our stuff up! When we drove to Arcadia in March for our Marriage Encounter weekend, it took us over an hour due to construction on the Interstate (or I guess they are called Freeways here?), but on Tuesday it didn't take more than 20 minutes and the parking at the Arboretum was free too ~ It always is.
Catawompus, which I was most excited to see and walk though. By the end Michael even wanted to see it the way I was talking about it the whole time and singing "Catty-wompus, catty-wompus!" as we walked along the paved roads. They simply must have taken it down because we walked all around the area that the map said it was in, but instead all we found was a locked garden with some scarecrows and a creepy dead squirrel on a post/sign. We drove down the road so Michael could get a Subway for lunch, then we drove us back home. It was a good day.
