A Day At The Park

The nice thing about this time of year is that we are starting to get out of the winter slump.  Thankfully, we live in a town where we don’t get crazy, snowy winters.  We have major wind, but on some days you will get the perfect Las Cruces weather, which is the reason why Las Cruces is one of the “Top Ten Places to Retire”.

And we had one of those days the other day, so Mike and I headed out for a little frisbee playing (courtesy of a frisbee-obsessed hound) and some walking for me.  (I have been told to do 20-30 minutes of cardio a day…not counting the million steps I take walking around my classroom all day!)

Every fall the Rio Grande is dried up to preserve water for the irrigation needed in the spring.  It is kind of sad because I guess the water levels are pretty low here, so I am curious to see how high it gets when they release the water again.

There is something about the outdoors with your family that makes everything better.  It’s so fun to go on “family dates” to the park.

Doesn’t he look like a little kid ready to go to Disneyland??
