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.
