Chocolate Festival - Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens

This past Saturday Elad and I headed over to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens to check out the Chocolate Festival that I gushed over on Friday.

I will agree that the Chocolate Festival wasn't all that. I only got a thimble of hot chocolate for free (but it was really yummy!! it had a Mexican recipe with mole). We bought a chocolate covered cookie and some chocolate covered pretzels which were great.

Otherwise we really enjoyed the scenery. We spent a few hours walking around the gardens and taking it in. They currently have a Dale Chihuly exhibit with glass sculptures mixed in with the plants and flowers. Check it out:

Really gorgeous photos! This same exhibit was in Atlanta recently - I missed it, and now I'm kicking myself!
