This park has been a part of our lives since 2002. It was a lazy afternoon, the weather was not so warm that you couldn't breathe and there was a gentle breeze. This made for a great day for walking and spending some time together outside with man-made and nature made living things and the sun.
Yes, I'm wearing my purse while walking, because I'm the official "family carrier".
Being the carrier means that my purse has water, keys, wallets, make up bags, coupons, etc.
I was in pink state of mind. I wore:
Old Target shirt
Old Navy (made in Indonesia) capris
Bueno purse purchased in 2012 for my Bahamas Vacation
Avia walking shoes, a gift from my mom and purchased at her favorite Macy's store.
My only accessories were some of my old Indian bracelets.
The girls and I were photographed by my youngest daughter's friend that was spending the weekend at our house and that we took for a walk with us.
Like I said: it was a breezy, lazy day for us as well as for the birds.
Here is where my oldest daughter used to practice and play soccer with her high school team.
I spend many nights cheering and offering support after her team lost a game right on those benches.
For some reason that escapes me at the moment, here in South Florida the lakes designers (I believe that there is such a tittle) enjoy putting this things in the middle of the man-made lakes? I guess to make sure that we know "the man" was here!
When I was going through an avalanche of personal, financial, health and family problems; I used to sit in this bench and cry on the phone to my friend Luz, my ex-sister in law, my friend Maria and my friend Marta.
It's not as if I don't have many of the same problems, because trust me I still do!
it's that from 2005-2009 things were a lot more complicated and difficult for me than they are now. Maybe what has changed is how I approach things.
A family of ducks. It strike me that I usually only see one parent with the offspring.
It was nice to see the entire family together going for an afternoon stroll.
Owls are protected in this park and they've made their borrow in this same area since I started to come to the park back in '02.

We are having Monday off, thanks to all The USA Presidents!
We're also supposed to have 45-65 degree temperatures and rain; the rain is needed since everything is a little brown due to the lack of rain and the 80's degree weather that we've been experiencing.
I'm looking forward to wearing my tights and ankle boots to work next week...
