Vacation, Ott’s Greenhouse and a Cake


We went to Ott’s Greenhouse on day one of our vacation. They specialize in wholesale exotic plants and a trip there is great fun to me. Since Mr. Ink also seems to enjoy plants, I figured he’d get a kick out of it too. Indeed he did.


Ott’s has plants/trees that have been growing there for years, a waterfall and pool, tunnels, and all sorts of wonderful things to explore.

We really did spend a lot of time there, and enjoyed it immensely. Not much else to say so I’ll photo dump.

Bug wanted me to take a picture of these small cactus gardens which she called fairy gardens.

Outside of Ott’s is a huge mound which, in the fall, is completely covered in mums. That’s not the case right now, but we still went through the tunnel and up on the hill.

Upon our return from Ott’s, Miss Bug had a birthday party with the neighborhood kids. She’d decided to save cake until we arrived. The neighborhood kids came over, as well as some of my parent’s friends. Miss Bug had decided she wanted a lego cake this year, and had brought legos in order for that to happen. My mom and Miss Bug spent loads of time creating and planning their lego cake. And it was absolutely lovely!

Cake and ice cream was had, and we still have little white chocolate lego pieces in our fridge.


That wraps up day 1 of vacation!
