A Summer Sunrise

We just unpacked the last piece of luggage from which will more than likely be our final trip of the summer. Tomorrow kicks off football practice for our oldest and basketball camp for one of the youngest. And can you believe that one of our daughters wants to shop for school supplies today?  She just can't hold off one more day! Most of our trips this summer revolved around family. This last trip was in my hometown of Kilgore,Texas. There was some playing of golf, catching up with friends and family, a lot of eating and even a little bit of fishing. Only one child likes to … [Read more...]

In Love with Garner State Park

Some places never quite live up to their hype and leave you disappointed.   We just spent the day at a place that not only lived up to the accolades from many friends, but had us clearing off our schedules for more visits in the near future. One day is not nearly enough to soak in the unforgettable Frio River. My family is undeniably in love with Garner State Park.       I thought that the Frio would be an experience much like tubing on the Guadalupe and Comal Rivers. I have  visited both of these rivers many times over the years but never with my … [Read more...]

Picture Perfect Day at Eisenhower Park

I just got a new camera and used it for the very first time today. It was long overdue. The camera store offers trade in credit for your old camera. Our credit was a dollar. 100 pennies. I told you it was old. The new one is a NIKON D5100. I am in love. These pictures are so clear and vivid. I can't wait to share them with you. Today was a day for......

Gone to the Dogs at Hardberger Park

I just wrote about this park but I love it so much that I am writing about it again! There is something so right about going to the dog park and being surrounded by fellow dog lovers. You don't have to apologize if your dog jumps up on someone or does some other ghastly thing that non-dog lovers consider awful behavior. I have told my single friends that if they want to get a quick character assessment of a potential date then they need to hang out at this park and see how they treat the animals! I also noticed that there is an abundance of single people that hang out on late Friday … [Read more...]
