Family Time:Trip Down Memory Lane


The weather was absolutely perfect last week, a Texas rarity. We met with friends to take the little train ride along the Trinity River. (I love how sort of great my hair looks before the train ride, and at the end of the day... it turns into a flat, yucky, sweaty ponytail!)

We saw turtles sunbathing under the city overpasses.

Later in the day, we met up with the hubs for a trip to Fort Worth Water Gardens. I loved this place as a kid. Then, about 5 years ago next month, a little girl fell in. Her father, brother and friend all died trying to rescue her. Since then, there has been a solemn feeling when you walk that watery grave. A small memorial has been added for the 4 who died and the water depth and pressure and suction have been greatly reduced to prevent further tragedy that would make rescue impossible.

In the past week, I have been thrifting and painting like you wouldn't believe. I also got in tons of new goodies for jewelry for my shop, JeweledAmbrosia, so stay tuned...
