Garden Family Day delights and delivers!

Family Day was a blast! Yes, the temperature was pretty high but we didn't mind and judging by all of the smiling faces we saw

- the kids didn't mind that much either.

There were tons of fun games and activities both indoors and outside.

You could even make a Father's Day card for dad if you were a little late on your weekend shopping!

Our balloon guy had tons of talent - check out those hats!

Other special guests included feathers, fur, flowers, and scales - well maybe not scales, but he was in the water!

The Chick-fil-a cow was here handing out fans and nuggets. He was a big fan of our other guests.....

Dale's Chickens! Boy were these some good looking chickens, even our Director Kevin Sharp couldn't help but admire them.

Patti the Plant Lady brought an element of surprise to our galleries...especially when she sang to unsuspecting guests!

Jesse doesn't have scales, but he had the crowd's interest as he discussed all of the cool things found in our fountain!

Visitors challenged themselves with trying to guess the plant by the smell. Some had a harder time than others!

Our South Lawn was full of games and room to roam.

The Dixon staff couldn't resist a game of badminton  for some much needed down time!

We hope you had as much fun as we did! Until next time!
