Longwood Gardens

Phil & Neva got us tickets to a Fireworks & Fountains show at Longwood Gardens, so we drove up in the morning so we could spend the rest of the day exploring & enjoying the Gardens before the show started at 9:15. Our drive up included a stop at our two favorite places: Cracker Barrel & Dairy Queen!!! It was a bit of a drive, but it was a nice day & the gardens were worth the drive!

Finally made it!!

Two cute girls in a double stroller!

I just asked Audrey what they were doing & she said, “Running around like bees!”

Playing with the fountain!

SURPRISE!!!! Water comes out of that flower!

Everyone getting in on the fun!

Cousins!! (Sorry – it is a little blurry. It was a somewhat humid day, so our camera kept fogging up!)

Hi Da!

Beautiful gardens!

Picnic dinner before the show!

The show was amazing with music, fireworks, & fountains with different colored lights all choreographed together! (Photo taken from Longwood gardens website)

Sadly, Audrey lasted about 5 minutes before she absolutely freaked out & demanded that we leave! I tried to convince her to let me hold her in the conservatory, so I could still see the fireworks overhead & hear the music, but that was NOT a good option. 

Instead we spent the time inside the Organ Museum behind the conservatory! At least there were buttons for her to push to keep her occupied!
