A Day at a (New) Park and I'm a Homeschool Blog Award Nominee!

A new park just opened on our side of town which is bike riding distance from our home and takes a few minutes to drive to in our car.  It is a beautiful park that we have watched being developed over the past 3 years or so.  There is a picturesque lake with a 1.4 mile paved walking/bike path around it.   On the lake there is a dock where canoes and kayaks can enter and the lake is filled with fish too and my children have enjoyed catching a few fish with friends. 

There is also a great playground for the kids to play on with a picnic shelter.  Recently the park officially opened and I shot some fun photos while my children and I enjoyed the beautiful weather at the new park.

I just found out that my blog is a Homeschool Blog Award Nominee for the annual Homeschool Blog Awards hosted by The Homeschool Post!
