This was our first time coming to this park and we were so excited to see they had a doggie park!
Luigi made friends fast and was enjoying sniffing around and investigating without a leash!
All was well until a big blue pit bull ran up to him and started fighting. Both dogs were on their back legs fighting.... All the other dog owners ran up and tried to get their dogs out of the way. Luigi just kept trying to run off but the pit bull was chasing him. Eventually the pit bull's owner started yelling at him to go to him. I had had enough and put Luigi's leash back on him and went for a walk.
The trails are so pretty and covered with huge thick trees. I saw many, many crape myrtles!
Some areas were still blocked off and we saw workers there planting more trees around the entrances. I think this has become my favorite park by far!
I even found a cactus there that was taller than me. I took a picture by it but I was wearing Papa Bear's sunglasses and it was not very flattering!
Here and there we could see little spots of color left.
I love the all the natural features!
We walked until our legs hurt! It was really very refreshing!
We are expecting rain the next few days but if there is a dry spell I am going to sneak back to the park and try to find some peace of mind.
The girls loved it! Luigi loved it!! I loved it!!! I need to try to get Papa Bear there now!
Our final photo.....
We came home from the park and finished up the day's work. Just when I though yesterdays phone call couldn't make things worse... it seems like it did! Well, not exactly that phone call per se but the whole reason these changes happened is back in the picture... big time! Today was a hard day. It's had more time to sink in and I've been pretty down. It's so hard to try to stay positive and upbeat and be a mom and a wife when all I want to do in sink down in my bed and cry...just cry and cry until there are no tears left....cry until this ache in my throat and my heart eases up. I hate waiting and there is NOTHING I...we... can do but wait. It's hard, especially when you don't really know what you're waiting for.
This is not the first time this has happened to us. It's actually the third time..and if you consider what we learned today it will be the fourth time. It's just this time it's on a much grander...a complete....total scale. This is THE BIG ONE....the scary one...the one I dreaded. Each time it happened before I listened to this song by Jo Dee Messina.... I always found comfort in it.
You better believe this has been playing non-stop on my iPod and on iTunes since yesterday....
When I explain more in a future post you will understand the title of this one better...
