Spring Break-Day 2

Day 2 of Spring Break: We visited Highfield Discovery Garden. This was our first time to visit this park and it was ADORABLE! It is a children's garden with seven smaller gardens such as the Frog & Toad Garden, Wizard's Garden, Trolley Garden, Vegetable Garden, Grandma's Scent Garden, & Butterfly Garden. But the highlight was the 25' foot Discovery Tree house. I scheduled our arrival so that we could attend the Garden Workshop. This weeks theme was "Natures Colors". Holden even did a science project, you place old milk in a bowl, add one drop of each color of food coloring (make sure they do not touch) and then place the magic wand (a q-tip with Dawn dish washing soap on the end) in the center and then the colors swirl! It sound weird but it was really neat. Throughout the garden there were items to find on a scavenger hunt sheet, thankfully we found them all. Holden was not leaving otherwise!

After hours of fun in the garden, we had our picnic lunch. I do not think we could have picked a better day, it was beautiful outside. I am so glad I found this place, what a gem!

After naps, Holden "cashed in" his coupon for ice cream at The Cone!
Verdict: Day 2 of Spring Break, a hit and fun by all!
