Tonight, we revived another of our favorite traditions: evening walks in the park. Even though it’s been Spring for weeks now, the weather has been a weird back and forth of rain and cold, so we haven’t done much outdoors. It was a bit chilly tonight still, but nice enough to spend some time outdoors together.
We’ve missed our casual evening walks. They are a nice time for us to get a bit of exercise, get some fresh air, and talk about our days and upcoming events. Tonight, we chatted about our excitement for the vacation that we planned a few days ago. We also planned a bit for a party this weekend (look forward to that post in a few days), and talked about the bachelorette party that Amanda is throwing in a few weeks as part of her matron of honor duties. We also talked about how we really enjoyed seeing some green again. Winter was the last time we were here, so everything was still dull and gray. Spring has breathed life back into the park.
Not only the plants have more life with the season change. The park was buzzing with activity. Lots of kids were out playing and practicing baseball in the various fields around the park. A few joggers and a few families were out on the walking trail. A couple of geese were also enjoying the park. The park has changed a good bit since we were there last. Another T-ball field is in the middle of construction. The old jungle gym equipment is torn out as they are working to replace it. All of the updates are causing a temporary mess, but the changed landscape actually made the walk more interesting, especially as we noticed some of the changes and pointed them out to each other. Now we’re even more excited for walks in the near future to see the progress of the updates.
