ten on ten: june

June 9, 2014

Ten photographers. Ten images. All taken on the same day. All posted on the tenth of the month. All linked together through their blogs. Circle through each one to make a complete circle to where you started. Up next in the circle is Carrie. I can’t wait to see what awesomeness she is sharing this month!

On the hottest day so far this summer, the kids and I decided to go somewhere new and try Colistani’s a small kids amusement park/petting zoo we had heard about. They didn’t have many pictures on their website so we didn’t really know what to expect. When we got there we found out it is a series of greenhouses and inside is a labyrinth from greenhouse to greenhouse with a mini golf course, restaurant, arcade, petting zoo and amusement park along with tropical plants and cactuses that you can buy scattered throughout the buildings.

As the day went on it got hotter and hotter, we were inside a greenhouse after all. The kids didn’t seem to mind the heat, and they loved the rides. No one else seemed to even notice the increasing heat, but I felt like I was going to faint. Finally we found an animal show and I got a chance to sit down. During the show they asked if anyone would like to volunteer. Always ready to be on stage, she had no idea what she was in for.

The kids are still talking about Colistani’s and want to go back. I told them that we could, but maybe we will wait for a cool, rainy fall day to go. It was so hot inside that I thought I might have heat exhaustion until I got home and took my temperature and realized I had a fever and ended up sick for the next 4 days, so maybe it wasn’t quite as hot inside as I had thought.

    Amazing images, as always Sherri! I just love how you captured the oddities of small amusement parks, and the look on your daughter’s face after they brought the snake out is priceless.

    How funny that we both explored greenhouses this month! I love the snake photos, and the tickets flowing to the ground.
