I’m Getting Excited For EPCOT’s International Flower And Garden Festival

My two boys and I took advantage of the wonderful Florida weather we are having and we made our way to Epcot yesterday.  I’m pretty sure my boys went with me so they could ride Test Track and to see me follow up on a “triple dog dare” they presented to me.  Benjamin and Lane triple dog dared me to drink 3 full shots of Beverly.  Yes, my boys triple dog dared me and well, I’m not one to turn down a triple dog dare.  You can see the results of this dare here.

I on the other hand, wanted to go to Epcot so I could start getting a sneak peak at what else, the topiaries!  I do not claim to have a green thumb, but I do love a nice looking flower bed.  There I said it.  I like flowers….and gardens and I’m man enough to admit it!  That is why I’m so excited about the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival.  Not to mention I also like beer, food and music, so this festival is perfect for me.
