One day, some of my kids and I had a day at the park..... the weather was beautiful-low humidity and cool temperatures- very unusual for July. It was an unplanned trip.... one of those times when the kids asked if we could just go to the park - I think it was the first or second time we have gone to a park this summer.
We took cameras and just really enjoyed the time we were there. Lots of other people also thought it was a beautiful day to be at the park, so there were many people, but it is a big park.
There were quite a few lily pads and lilies that were open.... and beautiful.
Later, he finally made it up on one... then only stayed there for a minute or so..... like a child... needing to keep moving, I guess.
Well, then my kids got an idea.....
One of my sons was able to reach one of the flowers... and pick it out of the water....
Later, when they crossed over to the island and my oldest daughter and I were the keepers of cameras and cell phones on shore.... three girls came along and spotted the flower. "Look at the lily pad!" they said. :) We chuckled over that.... So if you see an article about the unusual lily pads... you know they aren't really real. :)
Big trees in the park.... so interesting from this angle......
Lots of bright echinacea flowers....
The park has been full of the beauty of God's creation.... so much beauty especially in this time of year with the growing season.
Thank you for visiting my blog today and enjoying our walk in the park with us. I hope you have a great day. :)
