UT Extension is a “Party” Extension



We decided to take the girls to the local Ag Extension to view their Fall display for some family weekend fun.  For you Yankees,  an “Ag Extension”  is the local university’s agricultural extension service.   They run experiments and give advice to the local farmers and run seminars and such.  They provide a valuable service to the community.

Good times were had by all.  We viewed pumpkins and flowers and grass displays.  Baby Bird slept through the whole thing while Z picked up acorns referring to them as “her donuts”.

I have a couple valuable conclusions regarding our trip to the Ag Extension.  First of all, I am doing something wrong as a parent.  My daughter is TWO years old.  TWO.   How does this kid not know what a donut is?   I am going to have to remedy this situation very soon.  Secondly, These displays were gorgeous, but I think there may be some substance abuse problems involved in their creation.  I will let you judge the evidence.


Notice my first image on this post with all the trippy little fluid filled vials.  Pretty, hypnotic, makes me want a cheeseburger.  See the above image?  All the concentric circles? Also trippy.  Notice their are wine bottles all over the display providing a sculptural element.   That seems like a good thing for children.  It reminds me of Dr. Pepper’s kitchen circa 1998.   But, wait folks, that’s not all….. check these out.  IMG_20141018_110431_571 IMG_20141018_110350_782

That is a LOT of wine!  I don’t know who is responsible for these awesome displays, but I need to get invited to their next party.
