Stone Oak Park

Saturday Lisa and I went to Houlihans for the Russian Meet Up. It was nice. Mostly older Russian women though. I had more photos on my camera but of course, this is the only one that downloaded. My Gosh! I can't wait to have my lapband!
Sunday I took the girls to Stone Oak Park to walk and just get some fresh air. We took Luigi along. I went to the side near the school because the last time we took Luigi to the opposite side where the cave is and he picked up a scent. He almost dragged CC into the woods going after it... we got him back on the trail and then the thing he smelled took off after us.... a bobcat! We ran like you wouldn't believe. My big fat body was running like it never ran before. Poor Lena was running... I NEVER saw her little legs move that fast. I had this sickening feeling in my stomach like I was gonna vomit and my legs were on fire but they wouldn't stop.... they just kept going and going... and all you could hear behind us was the cats growl.... like a motor running! Too scary! So this time we went to the other side.. it wasn't without incident though!
I just loved the way the sun was peeking behind the trees.
My girlies walking ahead of me.
Lena-Pooh posing. This was before she was whining that her legs hurt and her feet hurt and telling me that SOMEONE was going to rub lotion on her feet when we get home.
This cactus is all over the park. I think it's pretty.
And I LOVE this one!
The tunnels.... See the man in green? He had three dogs. We had to wait for him to pass through before we went through with Luigi. HA! Luigi is so big he could have had all three of those dogs as a snack!
My beautiful CC with Luigi!
My two princesses with Luigi
Sweet Lena running. The flash makes it look lighted in there....but it's not! It's completely dark and all the sounds echo. It's pretty spooky!
Lena almost reached the end. I took this picture because it was so neat...the tunnel was black and then there was a little sunlight coming in and Lenas shadow in the middle... but again the flash made it all lit up...
CC and La-ligi (as Lena used to call him when she was a baby)
My beautiful Lena. She was so scared to take this pic. She wanted to lean against the wall but couldn't get good leverage and she thought she was going to slide down. So she opted to lean...
Me and Lena...hot and sweaty!
I'm not sure what these flowers (or weeds) are but they were the softest prettiest shade of lavender. At first we thought they were bluebonnets... but no.
I just couldn't get the true color to come through, which sucks because it's so pretty!
I absolutely LOVED this shot. The leaves were falling on the pathway and I thought to myself..."This looks like fall!"
And this my friends is what Luigi did 98% of the walk! Then he picked up another scent and took off...dragging CC behind him with her hands in her jacket sleeves tied up in the leash behind her back! It was NOT nice and took quite a while to free her! Seriously!
All in all.... we can't wait to go back. Maybe this time without Luigi!
I just wanted to clear something up about this post... I am truly not a grouchy person or negative person. I usually LOVE this time of the year.... however, last Wednesday after my wonderful lunch with Lisa, Mom called me. She was in the hospital a few weeks ago with pancreatitis. The doctors wanted a more in-depth look at her pancreas so they scheduled a dye-contrast test to look at it. Thank goodness her pancreas is fine. However, there is a very suspicious mass on her kidney. It's about the size of a grape. Her gastroenterologist wants it out immediately. He said it doesn't look like anything good. She had to get a referral from her primary to an Urology Oncologist before she could see the specialist. Her doctor is just not very attentive and I was soooo concerned that it would be weeks before he got around to it and the first doctor said we don't have alot of time to waste. I have been praying non-stop that her primary would take this into real consideration and be a real doctor for once. He did. She has an appointment in two weeks with the Urology Oncologist specialist. I have just been so nervous and it's been like a rollercoaster. I know that she is definately going to have surgery and that scares me. We are pretty sure we know what is in there and that really scares me. But... I know that she will be fine once it's out. It's just the not knowing how long this is going to take and it's my mommy! Of course I am scared. So this is why I have been down lately. I am really not a negative person....just worried right now. But it's going to be ok.. I know it will.
