Front Porch Chillin.

This was the scene today as my Mama drove away. We are on our own, on our own in Fort Worth (well, sort of...I mean, Adam's parents live 25 minutes away.) Okay, so we are on our own in our little rent house. We spent the morning with our two snotty-nosed boys (literally: they have colds) at the playground at Tillery Park. Tillery Park is a community-built playground and I love it! It is quite close to our house and the playground equipment is phenomenal- so imaginative with lots of little houses and pretend-play areas in addition to the slides and swings.

The boys spent their afternoons in two baby pools in the backyard. That's the way we roll when it's hot. Bring on the water hose. Adams' parents came by and we were able to run out to Target and Dutch's for a quick bite. Let me tell you, after living 1200 miles away from family, I am loving having family nearby. It is wonderful and amazing and, Lord, help me not to ever take it for granted.

So glad you found tillery park! We were there this weekend as well. And isn't dutch's good! The bread for the hamburgers reminds me of the dawghouse in Ruston. I thought of two free outside-of-the-house activities for toddlers/preschoolers that you might be interested in if you are wanting an outing. The barnes and noble (not the tcu bookstore b&n) on university has a storytime on Tuesday's and the southwest regional library on hulen street has family story time on Wednesday's at 10:30 and 11:15. Since it is now summer, both places can get downright CRAZY with kiddos. But the plus side to that is no one really notices when your own kid is going nuts. Have fun exploring!
