Exploring Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden

exploring tanger gardens

On a beautiful Saturday afternoon, on a trip to visit our oldest daughter in Greensboro we decided to do something different. Instead of the usual taking her and her boyfriend out to eat, we decided to grab some food for a picnic and explore Greensboro more.

So with food in tow, our family headed off to Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden. Imagine our surprise when we pulled into the parking lot to see a Little Free Library.

You see my friend Cindi, is about to open a free library in her neighborhood. Her grand opening is this weekend. If you are interested in finding our more about free libraries you can find out more here.

We ate lunch and went about exploring the park. It was absolutely beautiful. The sculptures and trails were just amazing. I wish we could have explored the park more but there was a photographer there taking pictures of a wedding party and it seemed like they stayed in the same place for a long time. So we weren’t able to explore as much as we  wanted to, but I was able to grab a few pictures of the park.

Look at this amazing sculpture of a dancer. This picture doesn’t do it justice.

What a wonderful reminder to stop and enjoy the music that could be found nature? One of the favorite lessons that I did when I taught music was to take  the kids on a walk around the school to stop and listen to the music that can be found in nature.

Of course, I always have to get a picture of my beautiful kids. Lex, the only boy is my oldest’s boyfriend and has become a part of our family.  Maddie, my oldest is next to him, Mikaela, the middle one, and last Gracie, the youngest.

I love how they asked for feedback. What a great way to blend into nature!

And this just blew me away. I loved this. Of course, I also took advantage of the fact that Lex was there so I was able to get a rare family photo.
