Reynolda Gardens

     We took Caroline to Reynolda Gardens twice today. 

     The gardens were once part of the Reynolds Tobacco Families city home.  I believe they are now owned by Wake Forest University.  The roses are so beautiful and I love the water lily fountain. 

     We had no idea how much Caroline would love them.  She ran and played and smelled the roses.  She even made a new friend.  I didn't have my camera with me for our first visit so I used my phone.  Here are photos from our first outing just after breakfast. 


      Since Caroline loved the park so much, I thought I should take her back and get a few photos with my good camera.  I thought it would also be a good way to memorialize her casts and post surgery recovery.  I dressed her in her finest silks, which just happened to have purple flowers that matched her casts.  She looked like a little princess, so I thought I would share the photos with everyone.

She checked out the fountain.

She played with twigs on the stairs.

She ran!
