A walk in the park

Austin is so great, have I said that already?

Yesterday we braved the heat and humidity and took our little boo to the dog park.
He is generally not a fan of other dogs but he was running around the house like a maniac that morning and I figured it was time for some more exercise than just around our apartment complex.

So we packed up the water bottles, put on the bug repellent and headed off for a new adventure.

We set off for Onion Creek Park.
WOW! This place is so beautiful!

Trees everywhere!
Grass everywhere!
Winding trails.

We explored a bit to get an idea of where we were and what there was to see.
And then I saw some sunflowers!
Just some little ones, but lots of them.
And then I realized there was an opening in the fence!
Oh yes, we are so going down that path!

Flowers peeking out of nooks and crannies.

Butterflies fluttering around everywhere!

We were not sure how far this path went...
or where it went, so back we went.

When we got back to the other side of the fence we turned to our right and thought we heard splashing...

oh!!! how fun!
I love watching dogs play in the water.

Apparently Skippy likes to just watch too.

So green and lush by the creek, aaah, this is heaven.

What a fun little adventure.
I am sure we are going to be spending more time here.

Skippy agrees.
Happy and exhausted.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

See you soon!
