Hello folks, today I have another beautiful fall post for your eyes to admire! My nieces are here so we are constantly trying to find places to take them and since it hasn’t gotten as cold yet, parks are the perfect place!
I recently found a park in Wheaton, Illinois which is about 15ish minutes from me in Glen Ellyn. It’s called Cantigny Park and costs only $5 per car! However, it’s $10 per car on summer weekends. It’s all worth it in my opinion because there are tons of gorgeous gardens to walk through as well as museums with activities for kids! Unfortunately, the museums are closed on Mondays which is the day of the week we chose to go. Even though we were sad about that, it still turned out amazing because my nieces thoroughly enjoyed being outside in nature.
The three year old ran around everywhere in happiness. (And as you will continue to see, her red coat definitely helped my pictures)
One would think because it’s fall, there wouldn’t be too many flowers so what’s the point of walking in gardens. However, I do have to say that fall had it’s own beauty. There were enough flowers, but the trees were even more gorgeous and we had so much fun jumping and running in the fallen leaves and taking beautiful photos.
Get ready to fall in love! 😉 On our way out, we found a fall wonderland!It was so magical and I could not get enough!
If you live in this area, you have to check it out while there is still a little bit of fall left! And if you don’t live here, put it on your list of places to see when you are in or around Chicago! You will not be disappointed!
P.S. I apologize for the amount of times I used the word ‘fall’ in this post!
