A Walk in the Park

We are very lucky to have a park right next to our townhome. So, almost every day, Rhys and I venture out there while grabbing the mail.
Justin was home today, so we took advantage of the evening and went on a walk as a family. The park has two baseball diamonds, a playground, a tennis court, a pavilion, and a jogging path with ditch that runs by it. It ends where an old railroad for transporting rocks, coal, and other materials from the quarries in the mountains across valley was.
We saw this big dog in a backyard on our walk. Justin loves big dogs. I immediately thought of the beast from the Sandlot.
We both LOVE birds of pray and saw this beauty. We were able to sneak up pretty close to it before it flew away. In a different life, Justin would’ve been a falconer!

At this small “memorial”, Justin, Rhys, and I sat in the shade and just enjoyed the weather.

  • What a fun little family adventure! And that dog very well could be related to the one that terrorized the Sandlot kids….

    That dog DOES look like the one from Sandlot!
    What a cute little park, and how awesome that it is so close to you.
    I’ve thought Rhys looks so much like his daddy, but in these pictures I see a lot of you!

    • Thanks! I do know he has my lips!
      And even though that dog was behind a fence, it still freaked me out. Big dogs make me nervous!
