As you can see the stage set up was in full swing in preparation of the Rockin for the Troops concert this Saturday!

We got to walk around this gorgeous venue and enjoy some (not all unfortunately), of the gardens.  They are just magnificent and was a great way to start the morning.  Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy as well.
