How many times have you been?

I know you’ve been to Sholom Park with me LOTS of times!

But yesterday was special!

Hubby took a quick photo of me so I made a new Profile pic with it. (I cropped this pic) The pine needles smelled SO good!

We saw the herons interacting.

That’s always interesting.

And the Koi were posing for photos….

looks like your husband is enjoying his new car. Has spring come early to your area, or is the weather always sunny this time of year?
Have a great week, and thank you for stopping by my blog today to say hi!

Oh and where will you be off to? What fun. Yes, that photo does look just as if you were in the water taking the photo. I like your new profile pic, too.

Your pix looks great. Your hubbys car is nice.

Looks like your both ready for a road trip.

Hope you have some $ left over for the gas.

Oh yeah! Couldn't be a better excuse fora roadtrip. Although I don't need any excuse! I love visiting that park with you; it reminds me of how surprised we were the first time we came to Florida that there are pine trees here...didn't expect that! (But it's partly why we decided to come back...I love those kind of areas!)

Susan said...

Love the new photo! And, the pics of the park; we had herons on our pond in Connecticut and I miss them, XOXO

Your new ride looks great! I know you will enjoy riding the roads in it, especially with a handsome chauffeur.

A new car always calls for a road trip and a stop at the ice cream parlor.
