Search Engine Strategies T-Shirt Promotion Ala The Kids

I give my kids every t-shirt I get while covering Search Engine Strategies conferences. They look forward to whatever is kid-friendly inside the SES earth-friendly canvas bags when I return home.

While uploading pictures taken over Mothers Day, I noticed that my eldest son was wearing his SES shirt during our visit to Longwood Gardens.

Moi, on Mom’s Day (and so NOT thinking about usability and seo!):

    Longwood Gardens is a great place. The daughter of one of my former co-workers was a horticulturalist there for a few years.

    It’s been too long since I last visited, and I’m going to have to stop by and hang out.

    Have you ever eaten at their restaurant? I hear good things about it.

    I actually had my engagement dinner at the restaurant in the gardens ~16 years ago, from what I recall we had a nice time, although since they hadn’t told us that we had to pay to get in the park, they let us go in for free as long as we promised not to look at the flowers…

    We wanted to get into the resturant but it being Mothers Day, the place was packed! It takes a good 2 or 3 days to really see the whole place, unless you have legs that never die.

    It was the perfect choice for where to go on MD.

    Simon, an engagement dinner there sounds awesome…too funny about the flowers, since of course its impossible to not notice them. :) We may go back soon because it’s hard to resist, my stepson couldn’t join us that day, and he loves the place (big catfish in the pond!)

    What always impresses me is how it all came to be. Two families, going back to the 1700’s who wanted to preserve trees. Thank goodness they did! Now its like 1500 acres of gardens, trees, meadows, ponds, and the gigantic conservatory.

    Bill? We can meet you there. It’s closer to you than us I think?

    It would be fun to meet you all there sometime, Kim.

    Definitely, count me in.
