A Walk in the Woods

Spent a GREAT day yesterday in the company of JANET! Thanks, girlfriend, for including a stop in Flower Mound in your summer travels!

We had a great time hanging out in the pool, carting the kids around (Janet's a Good Sport), cooking, eating & drinking good wine.

Went for a lovely walk in the woods, led by The Intrepid Explorer, Aidan. Scamp always on his heels. I think I'll send Scamp with Aidan on his forays into the woods more often, they seem to enjoy each other's company.

Lots of things to see, lots of wildflowers (which didn't photograph well w/ the camera I had with me), turtles, snakes, frogs, etc.

We had a real treat on the way back home. Passed by the neighbor's house and got to go visit their newly born foal, Belle. There is nothing more absurdly cute than a baby horse. The bristly mane, the little whisk broom of a tail, the long, long legs. Did you know that when a baby horse is born, it's legs are almost as long as they are ever going to be? It's never more apparent then when they try to eat grass - their neck isn't long enough to get their head down that far.

Stinkin' cute! She is an arab, and will probably be very dark, almost black. With two white feet in the back. I am looking forward to seeing this little girl grow up!

I am thoroughly enjoying your blog, the pics, the updates, the narratives. It's fun to see what's going on with you and your family. It's a nice way to connect.
