We made our first trip with two of our grandsons to the Dallas Arboretum today – the oldest two who are 2 and 4. It was a warm, muggy October day here in Texas. It begin to get warm after lunch, the 4 year olds feet were hurting, the 2 year old was wanting to go to Nana’s house for cheese crackers, Nana’s shoulder was hurting from carrying the camera and holding the boys hands. Not sure about PaPa – he wouldn’t admit it if something were bothering him.
We stopped and rested twice on the way back to the car, and the last stop PaPa grabbed two juices and a water. The boys slurped the juices down faster than they ever have around us. It was getting crowded and we were glad we got there when it opened. My pedometer says we walked four miles over more than three hours, and we didn’t even visit one side of the park – we spent our time in the children’s areas.
It was unseasonably on the warm side – 93 degrees, average is 79 for this time of the year, but changes are coming early in the morning with rain and a drop of twenty degrees.
It’s a North Teas about face, and come Tuesday the low is 49. Brrrrr!
Look at those pumpkins right in the center – the white ones. They were really neat – peanut pumpkins. Looks just like peanuts on them. I read where the peanuts are excess sugar buildup.
