Longwood Gardens

Thursday was a truly beautiful day...and I got it in my head that I wanted to be someplace outside. But not just any old place would do...I needed to go to Longwood Gardens. Now I've heard how beautiful they are and I knew it would be a great place for Norrin to run around, but I had no idea where this place was. It took me an hour and a half to get there...and it was worth it. We had a really great time...I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

The first fountain we came of many that Norrin would be sticking his hands into.

The topiary garden

Twirling around in the topiary garden

The conservatory

One of the many fountains in the Children's Garden

Norrin loved this fountain

More fountains in the Children's Garden...they know that kids love water...especially my kid.

On our way to lunch...lots of walking for my lil man.

A couple more outdoor fountains and then its time to go home.

The result of all that walking :)

In all honesty, I was about to call you and invite ourselves to dinner :). What a trek!
