Road Trip — Powell Garden
Sunday, July 3rd, 2011

The contest winners are listed at the bottom of this post!

Another of our stops (this one planned because the Red-Headed Hellion knows I love dinosaurs) was Powell Garden in Missouri. It’s a lovely outdoor botannical garden which I might have stopped for anyway, but this summer they’re featuring the “Jurassic Exhibit”.

Plenty of pretty flowers and trees. Love them. Took pics of them.

We walked the couple-mile trail to find the dinosaurs lurking in the bushes. Rawr!


Chomp-chomp!

Grrrr!

Ya know, once upon a time I belonged to a monthly mail-order orchid club. I adore orchids. However, I found that the new orchid arrived just in time to replace the one I’d killed.

My daughter’s not the only one with hambone gene. The six-year old’s workin’ it.

For those of you who remember my desperate tweets about how to get a melted chocolate bar off a Coach bag…that’s the bag with my two travel companions.

She’ll never be an actress. I asked her, “What would you do if you saw one of those for real?”

It was fun walking the route through the forested area and trying to pick out the dinosaurs they had hidden.

Anyone know what the name of this one is?

So, another installment of my road trip’s done, but y’all want me to get to the good stuff, right? Like who won the two contests? Alright already. drumroll…

The winner of the cabbage rose fairy journal is…Stacy Wilson!

The winner of the Promo Ho $50 Amazon.com gift certificate is…Nicole Passante!

Ladies! Congrats and send me an email to coordinate delivery of your gifts. And I know I still owe a prize pack or two to a couple other winners. I’ll get those out this week! ~DD

    Sasha! Are you kidding!? I’d be thrilled to do a road trip with you. We still have to do New Orleans, but there’s plenty we could see along the way too. As well, we could head to the Mississipi coast for some beach time!

    Awesome, Delilah!

    Hey, you like beaches n stuff, huh? Try a road trip with an extended stay in Savannah, taking in some of the haunted tours. Then you could go to the beach out that way, or even Jekyll Island. ;) Supposed to be really nice there.

    It looks like one of the hadrosaurs. Brachylophosaurus didn’t have the exaggerated bony formations that some hadrosaurids had on their skulls. Their remains, including some natural mummies, have been found in the US & Canada. It’s crouched like that because hadrosaurs laid clutches of eggs in nests.

    Orchids are tricky little suckers, I have one small one but damned if I know why it’s still kicking. :wink:
