On October 1st Quat, her sister Elizabeth and myself drove up to see Kelsey for her birthday and visit the local Gardens. Despite a morning full of rain the afternoon cleared up quite nicely and we were able to get some lovely photos. We spent about 3 hours getting dressed at Kelsey’s home and then realized that the Gardens were only open for another hour. So we rushed out the door and hurried on over. Imagine our surprise when we got there and they were setting up for a fall festival that would last well into the evening! There was dancing and a trick or treat event for the kids, plus various other activities. Also there were these delightful Jack O’ Lantern’s all along the pathways. We left before it got dark but I imagine they would have been quite a sight all lit up. After wards we went for sushi and then the three of us bid Kelsey fair well and headed back to Columbus.
