Let's take a drive

It's too hot for a walk today, so we're going for a drive. Destination: the park






We're driving in and around the area of the park and rec center. I thought you might enjoy seeing some of the homes in the neighborhood.


Big beautiful homes.

Arts and Crafts
A Jewish Temple converted into a wonderful home.
Cute little cottages.

Pretty front doors. Red door.

Yellow door.
Blue door.

Pink door.

A little shop that just opened.


Finally, we're at the park! Otis and Riley were wondering if we were ever going to get there.


Run, run, run!


Ok, we're done. Hot and thirsty and ready to go.


On the way home we pass some beautiful crape myrtle trees.


We're home. Oh boy, it's back to the sofa. Must guard the front window.

Enjoy your day!

Oh you do know how to make your boys happy! I am afraid my poor dog has been neglected of late. By the time I get home from seeing the baby, it is way too warm for anything but staying inside!

I love all the doors ....the yellow one seems to be calling my name ....... nope, too hot to paint :-)

Those sweet little guys of yours are the cutest Donna!! Ow, I loved the home tour. One of my favorites was the Jewish temple that is now a house, I love building that are converted into homes, they fascinate me.
