I know, it's no Redwood Forest, but hey, we're in west Texas --we don't complain.
We spent the beautiful warm day at the park. A short drive down to Buffalo Gap and we were there. At the Ranger's Station we received a park map. Jack, being his father's child, immediately asked to see it.
He took it, studied it, asked questions and boldly led us down the Elm Creek Nature Trail in search for a pond where we would feed the ducks stale bread.
And we're off:
Hannah (forgot to tell you.) came down for the weekend to cheer us up after Mike's departure. Sweet isn't she? Here she was teaching Jack some old Indian trick about how to tell which path to take when you get to a fork in the "path."
He loved learning a new skill which would further his knowledge of trail blazing.
"We're getting closer!" -I should have been counting how many times I heard that.
Austin was just wanting to keep moving, he didn't really care where we were.
Hannah was with us, come on, like the kids were going to get through the day without a posed shot of them with their walking sticks.
Ponce De Leon got a little tired.
"Keep going straight ahead, Mom."
Jack made it look fun. Ty had to give it a try. Jack begged for the map back.
