Bok Tower Gardens with Nana! Part 1

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!  

They have so many different plants here! 

The kids found a GATOR!! 
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!

Can you believe that both of them would be able to stand up in it??

Look.. here we are together! 

He is so cute. 
Always making silly comments and jokes! 

Nana really liked it here! 

So picturesque! 

Stephen is such a goof! 

Nana was explaining about the plants to Detto! 
She really got into it! :)

Stephen enjoyed the gardens too! 

All of the fresh air and gardens inspired him to.....
dance like a ballerina! 
Needless to say, I was crackin' up! 

Sissy was making me laugh too! 

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! 

Soooo pretty! 

So different...

I love all of the plants! God is such an awesome artist! 


To think a Man thought up this place! 

So cute! 

We spent hours and hours walking through here! I am sure that there is no way to see it all in one visit!

I saw so many plants that I had never seen before! 

This picture doesn't show it, but these Lilly pads were HUGE!! A person could lay across each of these! 

Everything was so lush and vibrant! 

Nana and I got a kick out of how bit these elephant ears were! Can you believe the size of these??

Stephen kept scaring the Koi Fish! 

I will show you more soon...
