I miss the world. K.’s stomach flu has held us captive for the last 8 days. I miss other kids and my mommy friends. I’m looking forward to rejoining humanity. When we get better, one of the first places we are going is the The Bonnet Museum and Gardens. We’re going to wander through the five ecosystems looking for squirrel monkeys, gopher tortoises, and cygnets. The monkeys are not captive, which makes me happy. I’m looking forward to seeing the house too. It belonged to an artist who designed it as a whimsical Caribbean plantation-like dwelling with airy indoor and outdoor spaces. The property is a place full of art and orchids. Great combination. Some Saturdays in July and August, they have family days. Which means kids are free and parents are half price. (Regular adult admission is $20). BTW, Broward county teachers get in for free all the time. During family days, the house tours cater to kids. They go a little more quickly. Another plus is that families can bring their own food to eat at one of their many picnic tables. They don’t sell food at the Bonnet House. And this bit of info may interest the kids, Bonnet House was the main location for the movie "Hoot" and the finish line for season 7 of the "The Amazing Race". So, don’t forget your camera.
