Not Post Related: Well life happened. I had a jam packed weekend full of family and traveling and today (now yesterday's yesterday) I moved back to Milwaukee. It's kind of been a blur but I'm feeling more settled in now. Since the only thing I have going on for the entire next week is job training, I hope to fit in some outdoor excursions and catch up on what else the end of August held. I've been trying to update the title of my last post for a good while now and have only managed to change it from "August 18th 2016" to "Life, Todrick" which is still far off from the intended "Life, Todrick Hall, Lena, Paoli, Epic" that I had been hoping for! I guess the post is bugged or something because I didn't name it before I saved it. Oh well!

There were many painted hummingbirds throughout the gardens. People were allowed to vote on their favorites and the painter would win a prize!
Some kind of creepy stone children playing ring around the rosy underneath a tree.
There was a specific area of the gardens filled with hummingbird facts.
"The Snow Garden."
These plants/flowers looked just like little artichokes coming out of the ground!
The Zen Gardens were my favorite!
We were both pretty hangry by the time we finished our walk through the gardens so we decided to go to Fudruckers for burgers.
I ordered the Inferno burger with a side of sweet potato fries.
Ryan ordered a one pound bacon burger with a side of cheese curds.
This was my face after taking the first bite and realizing the Inferno burger might not have been the best option. It burned so much!!
I thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the gardens. I admire those who know how to landscape and appreciate them sharing their abilities with the public! This reminds me of a place in Milwaukee I want to visit before the end of this school year called "The Domes."
I hope your weeks have been wonderful thus far! So much has happened during mine but I'm adjusting pretty quickly to being back in Milwaukee. Have a good one!
