The Unexpected Guest

I was thinking that Tom and I would not be able to see little three year old Hannah before we head to the mountains for the summer, but we got call asking if she was delivered to Ft. Worth, could we keep her over night on Saturday?
So we spent the morning at a favorite neighborhood park.....despite the cloudy cool weather
Tillery Park in Ft. Worth is an amazing (free) adventure land for any kid. Back in 2007 there was a fund raising effort to improve the parks play area. They more than exceeded their goals.
They have so many fun areas, even a new climbing wall
Looking over the fence (painted by children), to the south you can see the Presbyterian church in the Park Hill neighborhood.. Can anyone spy the city swimming pool in the trees?
There are even some chimes where you can make music.
I am thinking Tom enjoyed himself as well..
Now if I could only spend a day with our little Abigail from North Carolina :(

Did the Weather improve for Ernie and Margaret hiking the Camino?
 The report is that it is still cloudy and cold but no rain, sleet and wind that they had the day before.
As I explained on a previous post. Margaret joins Ernie daily, for several miles,
 and then rides in the tour van to the next stopping point. I have no idea if this is a grave or a mile marker. The post at the left is a Camino directional sign.
Ernie reports that they have been eating well, and wonders if they will need to atone for their sin of committing gluttony, once they reach the cathedral. I think that is the Spanish dish Paella?
They report that they will reach their destination in two days!


  1. Fun with grandchildren leave lasting memories for everyone. Yes, that paella certainly looks tasty; good fortification for long walks.

  2. Looks like a fun place for kids to play in!

  3. Dearest Janey,
    Oh my, this at least gave you a good reason for photographing this park and for Tom to let his inner child speak loudly! Enjoyed this very much; sweet and yes, how wonderful would it be for having all of your grands come to stay and play!
    Sending you hugs and how yummy such a pan with Paella would taste on a rainy day.

  4. You have to take your Tom to the playground more often instead of making walks with him! He has the time of his life I see.
