See this face? Oh my word...I love this face. If little chick had her way we would stay home 24/7. She's a homebody through and through. She loves nothing more than to play Barbie with her sister in the basement or be with her bestie across the street. Her idea of bliss is a bowlful of cottage cheese and a snuggle date with Fergie on the couch. She's simple.
And truthfully since we've moved here I've fallen into the homebody category also. Not by choice, just by chance. We live far it seems from everything. I like warm bodies present with me when I gallivant, and that's not always possible. So instead I hibernate. It kind of gets to me after awhile, and I get major cabin fever and HAVE to get out of the house.
So despite the protests of my little we go...that's why I made the summer to-do list. We've made progress on most of it. Maymont Park just needed crossed off, so without much thought to sticky temps and irritable moms...ME;) We loaded up our sweet neighbors and went on a fieldtrip.
A definite perk to living in Richmond is this quirky park. There is a part that looks like Italy, Japan and Hawaii. It's really cool. They have a beautiful waterfall that if you close your eyes and listen to the water you feel just like you are in a tropical rainforest. The effect becomes all the more real with hair sticking to the side of my face and sweat dripping down my back. It's kinda like visiting Hawaii, but without the super long plane ride...or the beautiful beaches:(
The trees are plentiful.
Critters are everywhere to be found;)
And there are lots of places in general to explore. Gotta love a day of exploring.
It's no secret I would inevitably be the first person kicked off of Survivor. I'm not exactly the outdoorsy type, primarily because I hate to sweat unless I'm working out, hate bugs, hate weeds...need food etc... BUT I love being surrounded by His creation, so a little bit of discomfort is worth it. I guess...ha! Even my little chick thought so...miracles DO happen;)
***Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the virtual hugs and love regarding my dad's health. He sees the doctor this week and will know more about what he can and can't do. We covet each and every one of your prayers. They are making a difference...thank you so much!!!
Have a blessed day.
