Photo Friday: Ostrich Adventures at Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch

Posted on

It’s hard to enjoy nature when it’s so miserably hot, but we managed to have some air-conditioned fun at Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch. Although my daughter’s favorite moments were watching the zebra eat a snack near our car and feeding the baby goats, I particularly liked this gal:

Ostrich. Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch.

Believe it or not, this marks the second time I’ve talked about ostriches on this blog. Go figure!

Photo Friday: Stopping to Smell the Roses in Houston

Posted on

Stop and smell the roses, Houston

E. stopped to smell the roses in Houston. Even though this was a very quick trip (about 24 hours), we managed to pack a lot of fun into a short amount of time. We even had an opportunity to stop and relax at the Garden Center, located near Houston’s Museum of Natural Science. I love unplanned additions to the itinerary!

Photo Friday: The Strangest Mascot in All of Sports

Posted on

Missions baseball

Yeah, I’m speechless too, and I took this picture almost a month ago.

That’s my daughter with Henry the Puffy Taco, one of the mascots of the San Antonio Missions minor league baseball team.

After a Sunday afternoon game, E. got to run the bases. She high-fived Ballape├▒o (the other Missions mascot) as she rounded first, and was brave enough to pose for a picture with Henry after she reached home plate.

Is it just me, or is he a little creepy?! Oh well, we love him anyway.

Photo Friday: Thinking of West Texas and the Wildfires

Posted on

Balmorhea State Park

A little over a month since our visit to West Texas, the area is struggling to recover from wildfires that destroyed land, homes and businesses, livestock, and wildlife. The scope of the fires is difficult to comprehend.

I’m sharing a picture from our West Texas trip. I took this photo at Balmorhea State Park. It was such a peaceful moment, out there with very few people around, watching my daughter walk across that red bridge and explore the park. I have wonderful memories of West Texas, and it seemed appropriate to share one of those memories today.

Photo Friday: A Greenway Adventure

Posted on

Earlier this week, we took a stroll along the Leon Creek Greenway in San Antonio. While the majority of the trail consists of concrete surfaces, we did venture onto one of the natural surface off-shoots.

We didn’t walk very far–about a half mile–but I’m trying to make sure that we spend some time outdoors each day.

The City of San Antonio maintains 23 miles of greenway trails and is contructing an additional 14 miles.

Photo Friday: Sometimes Travel is Boring

Posted on

Bored

During our big winter road trip from San Antonio to St. Louis and back via New Orleans and elsewhere, we stopped after many hours of driving. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find any fun or unique or interesting places to stop, so we ended up at a fast-food restaurant that none of us particularly like. Good times.

Somewhere in Texas: Bathroom Graffiti

Posted on

We stopped at a gas station on our way out west, and I noticed the following notes written on the door of the bathroom stall.

I’m a rule-follower, so I didn’t add myself to the list. However, I couldn’t help but read the various notes. I hope everyone had a safe trip, both the rule-followers like myself and the restroom rebels.
