Weekend Weather

    I’m aware that this probably sounds like the most boring post ever…but I promise it won’t be all about the weather.  Keith (the fiancé) and I went home this weekend for a little break from school and to visit with my sister, brother-in-law and niece.  We had so much fun, and I think we did just about everything on my to-do list
     We didn’t have anything to do on Friday (because neither of us have classes, and we were already home), so we just bummed around town all day.  Because it was so so nice outside, we drove out to Cypress Grove which is just a little nature park and walking trail on the way out of town.  Even though it was really polleny, it was still beautiful – and that’s really something coming from me…I am not a nature girl.

Cypress Grove 6
If this picture is not so great, I apologize – I left my camera at home, so you get cell phone pictures!

     I have tons of pictures of the birds that they house here…but birds sort of creep me out, so I won’t be sharing those.

Cypress Grove 10
The cypress knees – hence the name.

     Is it silly that I think cypress trees are really neat?  I mean, they grow in the water, and they don’t rot!  Plus cypress knees just look kind of cool when you dig them up.
     So there you go…not the most literarily satisfying post, but it was relaxing, and I enjoyed myself. 
     I hope your weekend was fabulous!

That sounds like such a cool place to see!

It really is, and it's never crowded. It's just a good place to walk around.

That is so pretty. I don't like birds either! I'm afraid they're going to peck me or poop on me and I've had them do both! Come check out my new deal site on my post today.

Thanks for stopping by! I don't even know why I took pictures of the birds - they were really terrifying!

I think that place looks incredible!
I love, love, love just about anything nature related!

Those pictures actually remind me of a park near where I live :)

I just love that it's never crowded - you can just wander.

I'm totally not a nature person, either, but these pictures really are gorgeous!

Thank you so much! I was so mad that I forgot my camera, but I'm glad these turned out okay.
