bike rides, bunker park, girls, playgrounds, and books

So this is our morning lately.

The girls wake up way too early. This morning they were awake at 5:30. Often we go on our bike ride early. Today we waited. After hubby left, we went out for our ride. We bike into Bunker Park which has a playground in the middle. Because it is a county park we don't have to worry about it being overcrowded in the morning. It does get busy around noon and on weekends but because people have to have a pass, pay to drive in, or go in under their own power, it is quieter.

This is the playground.

The girls play and I read. Then it is back on the bike for the ride home. I am grateful that we have this so very near us.

Can't think,
Brain dumb.
Inspiration, won't come.
Poor ink,
Bum pen.
Best wishes,


  1. Ohh look at that! I goofed on my clickable link again!! Boo-hisss. So now I have to try again.... Just to prove I _can_ do it! ,-)

    Thank you for your comment in my blog.

  2. 5:30 A.M.? words just about fail me...

  3. I adore your poem!

  4. I love that they have umbrellas for shade. That was very thoughtful. I like to go to parks when they aren't busy.

  5. All of our parks are a drive away but then we have a nice big backyard and plenty of roads to walk by. :) Shade is good--my favorite park has lots and a stream but the kids prefer the bigger, hotter one by the pool with no shade. (My kids used to wake at 5:30 am daily--praise the Lord they got older and now prefer sleeping till 8 or 9--which gives me some work time in the morning. :)

  6. Is this the same park that has the wave pool? That's my only frame of reference up that way - we used to go to the wave pool a couple times every summer. I'm not sure if my then pre-teen boys enjoyed it the most - or if my friends and I did (thinking we might have to go with the "adults" on this one!)
