Can you believe that this tower is over 19 tons of stone??
It was shipped in from GA.
Thankfully we were able to find a rain shelter and we waited out the quick "Florida" downpour!
While we were waiting we met some nice people and all watched in amazement as Alyssa chattered away in Spanish with them. She is so amazing!
They had so much energy even in the Florida Summer Heat!
This was dedicated to Edward Bok by one of his workers. The man saved for 7 years in order to pay for this Japanese inspired monument honoring Mr. Bok.
50 years? 75 years old?? 100?
After walking around for several hours we decided to grab a bite to eat at their deli and call it a day!

Detto headed out again for more Army stuff, so before he left we tried to cram as much into our summer as possible!
One of his all time favorite places to visit is Bok Tower Gardens!
Thank goodness it was a statue!
This time we thought it would be fun to bring Nana with us!
I love how they made the walk way out of stones.
It looked sooo cool. It must have taken forever to lay each stone on its side and to design the pattern!
These are all of the different flowers that are currently blooming at Bok Tower during our visit!
This is the size of the biggest Carillon Bell!
Always making silly comments and jokes!
Nana really liked it here!
Nana was explaining about the plants to Detto!
She really got into it! :)
Stephen enjoyed the gardens too!
dance like a ballerina!
Needless to say, I was crackin' up!
These kids were not as impressed with the plant life as Nana and Detto were! This is what they chose to do while Nana told Detto about the plants!
I love watching them all walk and talk together.
Detto is such an amazing father!
I don't know why, but I LOVE this picture!
This picture doesn't show it, but these Lilly pads were HUGE!! A person could lay across each of these!
I will show you more soon...
