Pumpkin Patch This Fall

My cousin and I were supposed to go to a pumpkin patch today in Rockwall.  We have been planning it because we haven’t been to one before.  I thought our little girls would enjoy seeing real pumpkins, games, and hay maze at the patch.  But there was a thunderstorm forecast today.  The weather became unpleasant and suddenly it got cold today.  So the visit to the pumpkin patch was postponed until next Saturday.

Fall is the time for pumpkin patches and harvest celebration.  It is one of the traditions here in the US where people gather and celebrate good harvest.  And a thanksgiving feast comes next.

I looked for pumpkin patch locations within and around Dallas area.  The Dallas Arboretum is having it’s grand pumpkin patch until November 27, 2013.  The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden is open 9:00A.M. to 5:00 P.M. daily.  For admission fees, kindly visit www.dallasarboretum.org for more information.  I am trying to see if my schedule will allow us to go there before November.

It’s getting cooler and cooler as days pass by.  That is why I would like to take the opportunity and the nice cool weather to get our little travels going.  We don’t want to miss this year’s pumpkin patch.

Asian Festival In Dallas

It was a very pleasant weather today.  I went with my girl friends to the Asian Festival held in Downtown Dallas, Texas.  This is the 23rd year that the Asian Pacific Americans gather in a festival bigger than ever highlighting the Asian cultural performances, authentic Asian cuisine, and products.

My friend and her husband, who live just a mile from my house, picked me up 9:15 this morning.  We took the DART (Dallas Area Rapid Transit) train.  It was my very first time to be in Downtown Dallas and riding the DART train since I got here in Texas.

Lion Dance

One of the attractions in the festival was the Lion Dance.  I haven’t seen one until today.  It was pretty nice.

I had a great time with the my friends at the festival.  The performances were beautiful.  It’s great to be out and about sometimes especially if you’re witnessing a very special event.

Because we had a DART all-day pass, we took the train again going home.  It was unusual to me how the train ride going home was backwards.  I was kinda feeling sick.  When I got home, I rubbed some Efficascent Oil on my tummy and I fell asleep immediately on the couch.
