Head in the Sand: The AHHH we’re moving in a week freak-out

We had a crazy week last week. Phil was in New York City for the first week of his new job. Jaye and I stayed with our friends Chris and Laura who live in Austin for the week. We had a lot of adventures (I've got several posts planned!), but it was also a long time to be out of our normal routine.

I've got a big goal for the summer: visit all the city parks in Richardson. Did you know there are 35 different parks in Richardson? I didn't until just the other day. We tend to go to the 2 or 3 parks closest to our house. But, I started wondering, what if the most incredible park ever was just one block further? And we were missing out? So, last week, Jaye and I headed to Terrace Park, instead of one of our usual parks. Terrace Park Details: Location: Grove Rd. and La Salle, east of 75, … [Read more...]
