|More MITL than DITL
||[May. 18th, 2009|10:51 pm]
This is not a DITL, because I slept until past 10:00 am. That's what the combination of tylenol PM and Husband having a screaming nightbear in the middle of the night will do to you. Sheesh, can that man have some scary dreams.Did I mention the fountains?
So, this is not a Day in the life, but more of a Moment in the life. Middle Daughter met some friends at Discovery Green, and we hung out too. But not with her friends, because she is a teenager and when you're a teenager hanging out with your friends and your parents at the same time is not nearly as cool as just hanging out with your friends.
It's a very nice park. It's only been open about a year, and I had never been. There was a live band and a market where I bought some wonderful hand-made soap using little wooden market tokens. I had to the buy the tokens. There is a pond, and several small gardens, and a playground, and a library, and a cafe where I had some yummy sweet potato fries.
It was windy.
I love this sculpture. It used to be in front of one of the buildings downtown, but they moved it to the park. I was glad to see it because I thought it had just been torn down.
You can walk through it.
We stop by the library.
Husband finds a cool book.
There are lots of nifty gardens. (The funky building in the background is the convention center)
And a whole bed of white violets...my favorite flower!
