I got some mommy and me time at Lilydale Regional Park this week! The past couple months have been crazy at our house. Mom’s work has been way too busy, then she has to help me with my blog, my sisters and I have sports classes, and we have had a lot of competitions. To top it off, with Bailie’s injury, a lot of adventures have been off the table. This week things have slowed down, and I got a mommy and me trip, which I love!
The park has trails all along the Mississippi River. We have driven through the area often, but never stopped to go for a walk. This summer the area has often been closed due to flooding, but now it is all open. The river has a lot of green on it right now, but I wasn’t swimming, so it didn’t matter. The weather was perfect for walking without needing to swim.
There are a lot of old bridges and train tracks in the area. This one doesn’t seem to be used anymore. There were a lot of ducks and geese on this beach. They all headed for the water when I showed up.
Even though Minnesota is known for all the water we have, I don’t get to walk around water very often. Walking along rivers is more fun than around lakes I think. There seems to be much more nature.
With all the flooding it looks like the water washed away much of the cover for the roots of this tree. Now it is just a spooky, gnarly looking mess! I’m thankful the tree didn’t fall over on me!
I love going for walks, and especially mommy and me walks. Hopefully Mom’s business will slow down for a while so we can do more fun stuff. It’s tricky as Mom needs the green papers to keep my sisters and I in the lifestyle we are accustomed to, but it is no fun when she has to work so much. We are looking forward to a nice long weekend now! Have a safe and fun Labor Day weekend, friends!
