Fun day at Longwood


The Fritzens and me, originally uploaded by DianthusMoon.

My pal Jennifer brought her son down to Longwood for his 2nd birthday today and was nice enough to invite me. The last time I saw both of them was in Ocean City, MD back in June, 2010. N. was about 8 months and he’s just as sweet and laid back as he was as an itty bitty. He was a bit shy with me at first and warmed up to me later. Longwood has a beautiful train display featuring Thomas the blue-faced engine in his own garden. I don’t think N. could believe the big layout for the trains. He really enjoyed that part, put when he got to the water fountains, he was in heaven! He got to check out several fountains and had to be changed. A true water lover. We had lunch also. I have been wanting their mushroom soup since the weren’t up at the Mushroom Festival last month. It was good. N. wasn’t too hungry, he wanted to ‘drive’ his stroller around which I remember Sean doing way back when.
The pumpkin here weighed about 840 lbs and N. said it was ‘heavy’. He was correct.
Here’s a neat parasol display:

  1. A good day indeed, I’m so glad you were able to go there with them and enjoy the day. The little guy looks so adorable and I love the picture of him looking at all the pumpkins:-) The parasol display is so neat!

    Not this weekend but the weekend after I’m hoping to get away with Steve and do the Halloween/Pumpkin theme trip:-) He first has to find out if he can get the Friday night off work. Fingers crossed!! xoxo

  2. I don’t think you have ever shown us fall at the L. gardens. Little N is adorable. I bet it was fun seeing the place through a child’s eyes.

    The parasol display was outstanding!
