Hermann Park Houston
Can I just say that I am happy it almost the weekend. It’s been hectic in my neck of the woods lately. I am looking forward to the weekend especially because Houston is hosting the 25th Annual Art Car Parade this saturday. This would be my first time and you bet there will be lots of photos!! What about you any fun plans this weekend?
Last week we managed to take an hour or two to go visit the Hermann park. Located in the heart of Houston, the 445 acre park boasts of a zoo, an outdoor theater, a golf course, Museum of Natural Science, a lake and tons of great walking trails. There is something for everyone. Unfortunately I did not bring my camera but I took some pictures from my phone.
The children were having so much fun at the water fountains. Carefree, fearless, full of life and enjoying each minute of the fun.
The best part though was seeing a family of beavers swimming in the lake. I hadn’t seen a beaver before and to see it swimming was a bonus. In fact I must confess that I did not even know that they were such good swimmers. I know that they are known for their dam building capabilities but I just hadn’t put two and two together. And yes I still do call myself a Canadian!!
Happy Weekend Everyone!
