After I stopped the tears, we discussed logistics of riding the carousel. Mr. Palm Tree and Jimmy had already scouted out a creature, but I had my sights set on another one, simply because of its cool colors.
True Story: if I regret one thing, it’s picking this damn dragon. Look how scary it is from the front!

Ever ride a carousel in a wedding dress? One thing is so not made for the other.
This was not just for cuteness’ sake: I was holding on desperately.
We’re smiling because we had to catch it at the right moment—the operator let us ride it for a little.
Told ya we had a bunch of TOMS shots.
After we played, Jimmy and Dawn instructed us to make use of the cute cafe tables situated around the park. I was excited just to talk to Mr. Palm Tree. He filled me in on some gossip and I told him about our mimosa-filled morning. It was as mundane as it looks, except for the whole wedding garb thing.
One of the true highlights of my day came as we were walking from one section of the park to the other. There was a birthday party being held under the tent that is set-up year-round in Schenley Plaza. The girls had spotted us and were squealing and waving and pretty much losing their adorable minds.
Waving to our onlookers.
I asked if we could go over and say hi and I’m so glad we did. We chatted with them for a little. Turns out, it was a Friendship is Magic themed birthday party. True Story: Mr. PT and I are HUGE Friendship is Magic fans (I am such a Twilight Sparkle).
After we exchanged hugs and high-fives all around, we moved on for the rest of our couple photos and to await the arrival of our wedding party via trolley.
