Discovery Green Park…

While visiting “Little Man” a couple of months ago, the weather turned cold that week. Perfect weather for our grandson to wear his new hat Grammie and Papa bought him. Okay, I might have an obsession over him wearing adorable hats. His mother says to me every time I buy him a hat or make one, “Mom, we live in Texas.” “How many times do you think he will ever get to wear this?” “I reply, Oh don’t you worry…I will always find an opportunity!” So, when his parents suggested we visit Discovery Green Park, I ran up to his bedroom to find his new winter hat. Smile…

Look at the astonishment on his face when he enters the park for the first time. You can see his mother encouraging him along…

One of the first things his parents point out to “Little Man”…look a big hill to climb and run down. Oh boy!

The boardwalk around the perimeter of the park and lake. Just gorgeous!

Well, something sure has his interest captivated? What could it be?

Oh my, an outdoor ice skating rink. How fun! Mommy was explaining to him, what they were doing. He seem to be very intrigued. We bought some hot cocoa and enjoyed watching this beautiful experience.

Afterwards, we walked around the rest of the park and found this very unqiue Mardi Gras golf cart strolling around the grounds.

As we were leaving the park, we came across this furry black beauty! They even offered carriage rides around the park.

What a wonderful day we had!

Do you enjoy visiting the parks in your town?

Hope your week is lovely for you.

    Thinking of you x

  2. Hi Laurie, The pictures are precious of Nolan. I guess your big move started today!!! You and Matt have a safe trip. Keep in touch. We had a great time on the cruise. But no place like home. Love, Annie

  3. I chuckled over “Mom, we live in Texas”.
    Love the hats and yes, I love the park in my city. An organization that I helped found, worked to build a bikeway/walkway that connects some of our small city’s parks.

  4. I love seeing children in these great hats, too. My grandaughter has an owl hat, that I just love. Your little guy is just adorable, and of course, your photography is captivating.

  5. What a sweet boy! You are the perfect Grammie making sure he has a hat to wear. He loos adorable in it and glad for the chill for you to enjoy him wearing it.

  6. LM is precious in his little zebra hat! Looks like he had a fabulous time at the Discovery Park… my boys love to explore new parks too, though it’s so so hard to get them to head home afterwards 😉

  7. The hat you bought for him is just so beautiful and he looks totally adorable in it. Great shots of a fun day Laurie. 😀 *hugs*

  8. Laurie, between your photography skills, and that lil fella’s sheer beauty–I swear, I have never seen a more beautiful little boy. No wonder you are so proud, this is one baby pik that looks good in “stretch pants”…;)

  9. It’s really funny for me to see an ice rink surrounded by Green grass and trees with leaves 😀 We have an ice rink at our legislative grounds that’s very pretty over the winter. There are actually miles of walking trails in our River Valley we enjoy. It’s left o’natural with few attractions like your park has but we do enjoy the peacefulness in the middle of our busy city.

Please share your thoughts...and thank you for the love!
