They headed back north on Friday morning.
We had some fun while they were in town.
Or, as Gramma says,
a little slice of heaven.
Elena had her first ride on a pony.
In the parking lot of the HEB store just up the road from our townhouse.
And then she showed us just how much fun she was having..
how truly excited she was to be on horseback
for the very
But look at the horse
He's equally as excited.
We went to Lake Travis.
To the park at Lake Travis.
We found a great little picnic area near the boat launch
that was completely
I mean utterly
uninhabited by others.
So Elena and I flew a kite.
While Gramma was telling Elena all about feathers
Elena picked her nose.
It's what happens.
Stella and Daddy hung out in the shade.
We also went to Zilker Park
to check out Barton Pool.
Turns out Barton Pool is closed on Thursdays.
So we had no choice but to find something
to occupy our time.
The Pigeons were happy to oblige.
when the dentist's niece came to claim him.
But the caterpillar,
got away unscathed.
Although he received a kiss,
he hopped away missing three of his six legs.
Maybe "hopped" is the wrong word...
P.S. A very happy Father's Day to all you dads out there.
