Longwood Gardens

We took a trip to Pennsylvania today to see the Christmas display at Longwood Gardens. It was absolutely beautiful. I got a new camera for my birthday yesterday. I wanted something that did well in low light (but still a point and shoot). Ed got me a Canon Power Shot S95.  It looks like it is going to be great. These pictures were all taken in the dark, and I thought they turned out great.

The weather was beautiful and warm. It started to rain on the way home, but we were dry and comfortable as we walked around the grounds. Here's Brittany and John giving me their nicest smiles.

We stopped at a tent and got a gingerbread cookie for Amanda. Crystal got the gingerbread hot chocolate, which the rest of us also ordered. It was great!

Many of the displays were indoors, including this topiary tree behind Ed and myself. We also enjoyed singing along with the organ concert and seeing the giant organ pipes behind the wall. It was a great way to get into the Christmas spirit.
