Chicago Botanic Garden Part 2

June 18, 2009

Lots of pictures in this post so go walk around the block or something. :P

The rose garden was the one of the gardens that were closed during the winter. I was eager to check out the roses. I was definitely NOT disappointed. Mostly there were just red and pink roses but they were so beautiful. I admit I was tempted to pluck a few. ;)

The waterfall garden was also closed during winter. It seems that I have missed out quite on quite a lot during my first visit. I love the waterfalls. It was nice to sit there for a moment and listen to the tranquility of water flowing.

We were tired of walking for almost 8 hours and decided to wait and catch the sunset by the lake nearby. The last time we caught a sunset together was at the beach when Rob was here.

While waiting, we camwhored.

We left about 8.30pm hungry as hell. Stopped by a restaurant (I forgot what name) and gobbled down food. It wasn’t great food so I guess it’s not surprise I can’t remember the name. Heh

We had crabcakes as appetizers. Not too bad.

I think I had some Jamaican chicken with rice kinda thing. The chicken was dry and the rice was kinda tasteless. The thing that was somewhat tasty was the apple sauce that came with it.

Rob’s main course. Some kinda beef brisket thing.

And because food wasn’t that great and we didn’t finish, I started playing with our food. I made a sailboat. Heh.

This is totally unrelated but later that night at about 2am, we were a little bored, so Rob took me shopping at Walgreens.

We were practically the only two persons in the store, as you can already tell with the empty parking lot. While cruising the aisles and poking fun at each other, Rob got ahead of me and stopped at the toys aisle. He then took a ball and threw it at me. I caught it and threw it back at him low. He kicked the ball and it bounces off and hit my forehead!!!! I swear it was like I saw the ball coming at me in slow motion and before I could react WHAM it literally hit me.

The ball then bounced back to him and he had a combination of a look of horror in his face while trying not too laugh. I was in shock when the ball hit my forehead (it didn’t hurt, I was just in shock), stood there for a few seconds dumbfounded.

When I finally realised what had happened, the first words outta my mouth was “YOUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” while pointing at him and then we both laughed hysterically. I kept pointing at him, between laughs and said “I don’t care, you’re paying for my stuff here!”. I grabbed a basket and piled on things like no tomorrow. At this point he was wiping tears from his eyes because he laughed so hard.

We bought flavored tea, candy, moisturiser, hair brushes, and a coloring book, among other knick knacks. Yes, a coloring book….for ME. No, I don’t want to get into that right now.  :P

~le sigh~ I miss shopping at 2 in the morning!
