October in the park...

*laughs* ok, blogging boo boo..
This is the dragon I speak of later in the post - I failed to load the picture...
and didn't notice until after I posted...too lazy to redo it and no idea how to place pictures in between others...
Now on with the story....


Today I volunteered my time...

(...which I have a habit of doing all too often...just ask Ryan)

To the American Heart Association Healthy Start Walk

In the beautiful Bushnell Park in Hartford Connecticut

ahhh...look at how beautiful the park is in October...

the colors were out of this world!

A calm, cool October morning...

and then came the masses...



Hundreds of them...

All with little ones with face painting and bouncy house needs!

Usually this would be my idea purgatory...
But it was a pretty decent Saturday...

even when all the older kids jumped into the dragon when the parents walked away

and it started to roll accross the field!

Sorry, I didn't have a chance to get pictures...I was busy tethering down

(or I am saying taming) a dragon!

...now who can say they did that on a Saturday morning?

You may now call me

Divaeva - Dragon Tamer!

This was my fantastic helper Danielle!

Thank you Danielle!


Had to have a picture of the fountain in the center of the park...


(The picture really doesn't do it justice - it is much more majestic in person!)


Told you...majestic, right?

More of the beutiful colors...
(and the bouncy thingy that didn't try to take off with children!)
This my friends is the capitol building in Hartford, CT
I would have to say it is my most favorite building in Hartford.
There are so many other beautiful structures that I couldn't get picture of...
they made me stay and play with the children *laughs*
Maybe...no definitely...another time!

This is how the day played out - when I was leaving the clouds stared to roll in...
it got dark and dreary...
(so I headed to the mall for some retail theraphy - nothing like some flourescent lighting to lift ones mood)

Just a few more cool pictures of the building I got to hang out with today!

Pretty cool, right?



When I grow up I want this to be my castle...

I mean I did tame the Bushnell Park Dragon for them after all!

I hope your Saturday was fun filled

& full of majestic splendor as well!

*hugs*
