My Dh & I knew we needed a short trip this weekend after an already busy spring semester ( truthfully, we couldn't wait for summer ) LOL!! ....so we decided to visit Austin's Beautiful Zilker Park, the Botanical Gardens, the Zephyr Train and the Playgrounds and Trails! Just lovely!
What a Fantastic time we had! There were and families galore! So Much Fun! We hiked, rode the train, ran and walked for hours. Back at our hotel, we swam for a few hours.....till we wore ourselves OUT! Then we hit that hot spa. It was just lovely!
Here are several pic from the Gardens. My favorites are the poppies, daisies and delphinium in bloom!
This last pic is a hand made Faerie House....right now there is a trail of Faerie Houses....this trail lends a certain elegance to the Botanical Gardens.
We are glad to be home....because there's no place like home.
We are all of us refreshed to finish this spring semester with a Bang!
I feel refreshed myself esp after that swim.....forgot how much I LOVE to swim!
We also chose to bring lots of fresh healthy food in our cooler....really makes THE difference on a family vacation. I felt vibrant throughout the weekend.
I am so glad we planned this trip around outdoor fun. Must repeat this again.
on a sober note:::.... I ask for your prayers for my sister, Heather. She is scheduled for surgery in Ohio tomorrow morning. I LOVE her So! So in advance for your prayer cover. I cannot tell you what a comfort it IS to me to know I can come here and recieve prayer.
Such a beautiful place to visit! I need to see that one day. I know you enjoyed your time together. Family time is always the best times! I pray your sister is recovering well in Jesus Name and that He complete the Restoration progress.
Aren't we a week away from May? I was outside and felt underdressed with coat, scarf and gloves! Praise The Lord for EVERY New Day! Enjoy A Wonderful Rest Of The Week!!! Deb 1189 days ago

How beautiful......we didn't see that when we visited our son, who lives there a couple of years ago, but we will put it on our list. The Austin Zoo was a lot of fun though!! God bless!! 1189 days ago
Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos! I am craving the flowers and fresh smells of spring. I especially like the photo of the poppies, daisies and delphiniums, as well as the Faerie House. I need to put a Faerie House in my gardens this year. Now that our snow is melted, I'm remaining hopeful that spring may have finally arrived.
I was going to ask how your sister is doing, but the blog answered my question. I am keeping Heather, and your family, in my prayers. Please let me know how she is doing.
