A Good Parking Spot

Today we found a new park. I kept seeing this park from the road and made a mental note to check it out soon. I kept telling the kids that we were going to a brand new park that I found. They were so excited. I really want to remember these times when the promise of a new park is all it takes for extreme excitement. :) This park had a bonus......walking trails! We went Splorin' (Exploring). They were making up adventures and directions. Side note: It was HOT! I just want to kick myself for all the times when I have said "Where is the TX warm weather?" during our cool spring. It was here today and it brought back summer flash backs. It's right around the corner. Another side note: We've got a big week ahead of us....Kindergarten round up on Tuesday night:)

The President and I have something in common......

We both have our very own rose garden. My roses have been abundant this year:)

We're heading into the season where strawberries are cheap so we take full advantage

I made blueberry pancakes this morning with fresh blueberries. The kids were not fans:( But I was.

I caught Kate in two thoughtful poses on this chair. Yep, that's a plastic snake in her hand. She chose it with tickets from the arcade when she went to play putt putt with her daddy yesterday.

Our new cool park. A xylophone!

This girl loves to swing!

Carso had just taken a nap before we got here. He takes naps about 2 times a year at our house so you can imagine what kind of mood he was in. But he perked up soon.

Our "Splorin" trails

Carso pointing the way. It was a dead end:)

A long the way we collected a lot of rocks that Carso said we could take home and paint. The crafty gene is coming out

Kate is running to find out what's around the corner. It was a bridge filled with graffiti. But to her it was "a place where all of the dragons live!"

Taking a rest on the bench

Her relaxin' pose

Pointing the way to "a new path Mommy! I found it!"

Hot little cheeks!

Kate explained, "Ok guys this is where the baby dragons live." Which prompted Carson to immediately ask, "What about the Mommy and Daddy dragon?"

She insisted we all sit down so that she could teach us about "rock families."

Carso and his rock house.

Kate's "fashion poses" Oh dear!



God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6
