Spending a Saturday morning at Zilker Park is definitely on my top 10 list of favorite things to do. We start by walking around Town Lake, which is something that Sam and I have loved to do since we met in college. Charlotte does great in the stroller since there are so many puppies and babies to look at. She says "Hi Ocean!!" to the lake the entire way around (at least 100 times). She loves to go over bumpy bridges and under tunnels. We stop halfway to feed the ducks, turtles, birds and swan which is her favorite part. After our walk, we head over to the playground to play. This particular Saturday was hot, hot, hot so Sam did one of his favorite things... swam in Barton Springs! Such an Austinite :) No way I'm getting in 68 degree water no matter how hot it is outside!! Even Charlotte didn't like it, and I have never seen her turn down swimming for cold water! He stayed to go for a dip while Charlotte and I enjoyed a nice, warm, breezy train ride around the park. What a perfect family day!! Oh, yeah... and then we stopped at County Line Bar-B-Q ont the way home to make up for all of the burned calories. Yum!!!!!
