Day 19-Something You Want

Texas State Park Guide by Texas Parks & Wildlife

I would love to be able to visit and explore all the different State Parks, National Parks and National Monuments not just in Texas but nationwide. Being able to travel from one place to the next at our leisure in an RV,  picking out our next location that we want to go and explore would be amazing. What better way to learn than hands on learning?

Check out Two Everyday Divas and Flower Faerie Lives Life to see their takes on “Something You Want.”

“In My Bag” is the challenge for tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by.

Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin, TX

About a week ago, we took a trip down to Austin to meet a dear friend who we’ve known for many years online but have yet to meet in person. It was his first trip to the States and he was staying with a family in Austin, so we had to stop by and say hi. I decided I wanted to visit the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center since we have never been there and it’s a place I’ve been wanting to check out. We spent a few hours exploring the grounds. It’s definitely a beautiful place to enjoy the outdoors. We went on an exceptionally beautiful day. Warm and breezy, we couldn’t have asked for better weather.

Monk had an awesome time running around. She especially liked going up to the observation tower.

Once we explored all of the main outdoor space. We headed to the gift shop to pick up a couple of items. They have a nice selection of gifts. Garden art, wind chimes, shirts and hats, books and much more. After the gift shop, we dropped our items in the Jeep and headed back to explore the Hill Country Trail.

There was a beautiful spot where they strung up lots of bench swings, baby swings, and rope swings. We stopped there to rest and play on the swings for a bit.
