Don’t we live in a lucky place? St. Edwards Park is less than five minutes from our home and it offers a huge play structure, miles of hiking, scenic vistas, a lake, orchard and more. We love ‘our’ park so we headed out yesterday to explore. We had a lovely time.
Today’s hike took about an hour. We were slow, but the trail was steep and I was a little sore in my joints yet from my runs this week.

We made it to the water’s edge where we threw a stick for Martha for a bit before heading back up the trail. It was steep! Like this:

Isn’t it funny that when you’re there, in the thick of it, an activity or task will seem insurmountable, but then when you show someone the picture you’re like, “hmmm… That is NOT as steep as it FELT!”

    Tami was leaving to go out with her friend and the kids begged to go with her. I said, "you don't want to go with mom, she is going to the Tapas bar and we are going to stay here and play games."

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

    And they are right. We call him that after the folksong that we sing sometimes.

A long time ago…
