Dallas Arboretum’s Autumn Festival 2017: Wizard of Oz

The Dallas Arboretum is one of my favorite places to go around the DFW area.  I received complimentary tickets to take my family to visit for their fall pumpkin exhibit which I have been wanting to check out again for YEARS.  The last time I was there for this exhibit, my oldest (who is 12!!) was in Pre-K.  Fall is definitely my favorite season and our last trip to the Arboretum, we just missed the pumpkin display.  This year, there was a really cool Wizard of Oz theme that we all enjoyed. 

It was a little windy, but otherwise, the weather was perfect.  My second oldest, Remy, was being a grouch which is why he isn’t in a couple of the group pictures but once he remembered how awesome the Arboretum was, he started having fun.  What I love most about this place is that it gives me a great backdrop for super cute pictures to send to family AND there are loads of things for my kids to do so they don’t get BOOOORRRREEEEDDD. 

The Children’s Garden is full of fun activities that teach you about things like solar power and water energy.  My kids really love playing in the water as well as in the big tree house.  Ok, maybe my four-year-old wasn’t a huge fan of the tree house.  He isn’t much for heights and I can’t blame him there.  We had fun getting lost in the maze though!

All of the kids, all of the jobs, all of the school events, Navigators events, family events… I could go on and on for days. I am terrible at keeping track of things, so it is very important that I write everything down. An awesome planner lets me be responsible and have fun because I can customize and decorate it all I want.
