We had to see it from a distance since they have closed off the paths due to it being dangerous. Still looks beautiful to me, so peaceful and the sun shining made it even better. If the summer had more rainfall then you'd see a lot more water of course. I loved all the trees and just being there with my mom. So cool to show my kids places I've been to as a kid, sadly I barely remember being here but I'm sure it was fun back then for me. We were the only ones there so it was perfect for pictures.
I do this every chance I get now, sun shining the trees!
HOORAY for self-timers !!
The kids had rock throwing contest
Thankfully mom and I made it back up the steps
the only flowers we saw there, they were pretty
sorry not the best picture, but I want to remember this picnic. See my cell phone there
we played music and my mom would dance and sing with the kids. It was so fun to see them all laughing and my mom having fun with them. She loves country music and the songs from Burlesque, Renee also loves to sing those songs. So glad to have been out this day and make these memories. My mom also made her famous potato salad and we ate it all and the watermelon I brought. Next week we hope to visit another park from my childhood, let's hope the cooler weather is coming to stay for awhile makes it so much nicer to go out and do these things.
On the way home my mom had the kids singing loudly to our new Kelly Clarkson CD, love love hearing these kids sing in the van. This was the perfect way to end our outing. Thanks mom for sharing this day with us, can't wait to do this again next week.
I do not have my PL photos yet, it's been a busy and HOT HOT weekend. We went to our fair daily for hours at a time and sadly I didn't get any pictures. I didn't want to carry the camera, I was sticky icky sweaty all the time and the kids all went there own ways this time and that threw me all off. Every year they stay right by my side and we share it all together, not so this time. I did have about 6 lemonades, 5 fries, 2 corn dogs and a full stomach by the end. I do want to remember some things from it though and will post it later. Hope to have my PL done for Friday if all goes as planned.
Have a great week everyone, stay cool for us in the USA and my aussie friends I will send you some of our hot temps for you to enjoy. Today was cool finally and we played outside HOORAY !!!
