Garfied Conservatory – August 16

ChitownDollz hosted a meet up at the Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago on Saturday.

It was a pretty small turn-out (ok, it was a pretty dismal turn-out – there were 2 of us), but it was actually for the better.

Unbeknownst to us, the conservatory has been undergoing maintenance and half of it was closed – including the Palm House and the Desert (Arid) House. How disappointing!

We did, however, have a family of siblings come over to explore our BJDs. They ranged in age from about 2 to 11. They were wonderful kids – absolutely precious! They loved how posable the dolls are, and how the hair is all wigs. And the older brother did such a great job wrangling in the younger ones when needed.

After the kids left, we walked around for a short while before we decided to head out to Oak Brook to have some coffee and chit-chat.

It was such a good time being able to catch up with a good friend.

I was a bit lazy, though, and didn’t get very many pictures.. Actually, I only took 3 pictures during the entire day. Talk about slacking!

The next meet up, I need to make sure I do better. 😛
