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.
