Day Trip: Colorado Bend State Park (2016.04.14)

The author, sitting atop a boulder near Gorman Falls (Image by a nice lady I met on the trail.)   I got that restless feeling again — the urge to travel, to see new things, to walk in a wilderness. The least expensive way to satisfy that thirst is to visit a state park, so[…]

Over 70°F both days (40s for lows). Sunday afternoon, MRB went to Carl Levin city park in Harker Heights, which is right behind IHOP. After 45 minutes there, M called me to suggest dinner at IHOP (staring at the sign probably helped), and I said I would meet them at the park. I collected my[…]

2014.11.19.WE: Notes

I went with MRB to Story Time in Harker Heights in the morning, where 75 or so kids heard music by Joe McDermott, an Austin-based children’s musician. It was an enjoyable time. RLF is more like me — sit and watch, absorbing it — while BWF was more participatory. Afterward, lunch at KFC. At home,[…]

2014.11.06.TH: Notes

BWF took an early nap (pre-lunch) so we went out for lunch and stopped at Community Center Park (excellent name, right?) on the way home. We hadn’t been there in a while. No one else was at the playground and we soon discovered why — water standing everywhere. We wiped the slides with a stack[…]

All four of us went to Story Time at the Harker Heights library, where the kids enjoyed a puppet show and some books about Halloween. Unlike at the Killeen library recently, the word “Halloween” was actually used. I was told the Killeen library employees avoided the word to keep from offending local Christians, using instead[…]

BWF woke up about midnight and then again at 05:00; both times I got him and soothed him back to sleep. I felt like a million bucks of debt by dawn. Afternoon: Four of us went to Carl Levin City Park in Harker Heights. Both kids played well and had a great time. Had supper[…]

* MRB to Story Time in the morning. * RLF skipped her nap — fourth day in a row. * All of us to Purser Family Park in the afternoon (about 78°F). BWF had a really good time, on the playground, talking to dogs in the dog park, exploring the walking path, etc. RLF had[…]

Morning: drove to Purser Family Park (since Stagecoach Road finally reopened after 11 months of closure, we can visit this park again; we’ve missed it). BWF had great fun — he said hello to a small dog, chased a bird, chased two bigger kids who acknowledged his presence, climbed, fell, and explored. RLF mostly walked[…]

2014.04.16: At The Park

Afternoon: High was 71°F, clear sunny sky, just a little breeze. Took the kids to Carl Levin City Park in nearby Harker Heights, where BWF had a wonderful time, and RLF griped and complained but had a few bright moments. (I’m convinced that her memory of the afternoon will be a wonderful time; she will[…]

After RLF’s nap, we went to Dairy Queen for a Blizzard (me) and a malt (MF), and then spent two hours at Purser Family Park in Harker Heights (which is now on Google Map’s satellite image; until a few days ago it was depicted as an empty gully). For the first time, we explored the[…]
