A nice walk

Since I've been here I've been wondering where there's easy parking accessibility to the Town Lake walking trail. I found it today in an obvious spot and enjoyed a nice walk with Marisa while Elena was at school. It brought memories of two things, my walks with just Elena before Marisa and my frequent walks in Cambridge by the Charles. It's so nice to have a shaded, scenic walking trail to go to again. Oh the above picture was taken by a random mom who got out of her car just as she was leaving and wanted to take our picture because we matched. I didn't plan it that way but she said occasions like that for good pictures and with a baby are rare so I agreed.

Field trip

We went to a local ranch with my mom's group last week. These girls LOVE animals!
They took a tractor ride
They pet a rooster
They brushed a horse

They had a snack break
They saw a horse show. This was their favorite part. The kids yelled jump and cheered when the horse jumped. I loved Marisa's face when the horse jumped, she turned to look at me every time with the excited face below.

They roasted marshmallows
Look closely, it's not a dog, it's a 2 month old pig!

Berry picking!

I'd never thought I'd say this, especially when Omar told me about the traveling his job would entail...but I LOVE his new work schedule! He is typically done with work at home in the afternoon. He says it's an advantage of not having office distractions. I'll take it! He suggested we head out to Marble Falls yesterday afternoon for berry picking on what was a beautiful spring day. The girls love strawberries and even more so when in abundance and within their reach! What a wonderful family activity! Really enjoyed it! Thanks honey for a memorable day. :0)

That's Marisa giggling in the background, loved to hear her excitement.
