Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Another weekend, another park


Isn't this a cool place?

Katie here.  You know how I got my Mama to promise to take me on an adventure every weekend?  Well this past weekend it was getting to be Sunday afternoon and still no adventure!  I stomped my perfect little feet and tossed my beautiful curly locks but all she did was put me outside in my pen.


I was having none of that!  An afternoon in my pen is not an adventure!  I made myself a general pest and eventually Mama said “OK little one, let’s go walk in the woods.”  It was about time!  But she picked one of my favorite activities so I forgave her for being so tardy.

Which way should we go?

Which way should we go?

We went to the Holly Recreation Area and walked on a path through the woods that we’ve never explored before.  It was awesome.  We need to take Peep exploring on that path sometime soon!  We did have to go up a big hill.

You sure you want to go way up there Mama?

But I didn’t have any problem with that.

Well let's get going then!

Well let’s get going then!


Mama was very patient and waited for me to check stuff out.

What's in here?

Some of the path was through the woods with big trees.  The mosquitoes weren’t too bad and Mama was wishing she’d come earlier in the day, because we had to turn around before I wanted to since it was getting dark.

Fun times!

Fun times!


We’re definitely going back.  And I hope it’s soon!

But I'm still not getting my feet wet.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. Are you sure you didn’t sneak into one of MY parks – it sure looks like MY woods……but because you are a princess I would allow you in any of my parks and gladly walk with you 🙂

  5. I need to get some beauty tips from Katie. How does she always look like she stepped out of the salon?


  6. Woo-Hoo, another adventure — way to go, Dawn and Katie! Don’t worry, Dallas doesn’t like his feeties wet, either!


  7. Looks like a lovely park worth waiting for. Perhaps you were lucky that your Mama had you wait. Now you have to go back to finish what you started 🙂
