|Wagon Bridge - Canadian, TX|
|Get that thumb out of your mouth!|
|Sometimes on the road of life you have to stop and admire the beauty.....|
|Or in his case, wave at the train!|
|Beautiful old wagon bridge....|
I have to consider Friday the last official day of summer - assuming the weekend doesn't count...... With the weather being in such a pleasant phase right now, I figured one last summer fling was order. So I took the boys up to Canadian to have some fun. We hit Dollar General on the way in for allergy meds for Mommy....... Then we headed to the old wagon bridge that has been beautifully converted to a walkway. Matt loves to ride his bike down the long straight path, and I prefer it to the street for numerous reasons - one of which is no wildflowers to stop and pick every 3 ft. :) (Though I do love wildflowers from my son.....) Ben takes the more laid back route - strapped in of course because I just can't stop the visions of him leaning out over the side and falling...... Usually there is a nice little run of the Canadian River about 3/4 of the way down the bridge.....apparently by August its reduced to something like small tide pools here and there..... So to the tide pools we looked - saw tiny fish and water striders - and headed back to the car.
We hit the little park by the rodeo grounds. Matt looked for bugs and Ben was a kiddie slidin' fool! Then we tallied the fast food options in Canadian......and came up with DQ. (Okay - it might be the only true fast food option in town - hey! its more than we've got here!!!) I have to say I was SUPER impressed with DQ today. They made a special sandwich for Ben (grilled cheese all the way baby!), had great customer service, and they gave me a Mom size drink even though I ordered a kid's meal. Plus, you just can't beat a dipped cone for dessert! So, thanks DQ! I'll check you in Canadian again!
Before little bit toddled off to dream land, we made a quick stop at the super cool kids section of the Hemphill Co. Library. The boys were more interested in toys than in books..... what can ya do?
We hit the open road mid afternoon and Ben snoozed while Matt and I took in some Dave Ramsey..... I'm sure he was thrilled!
Did I say my boys are super totally stupendously awesome?? My boys are super totally stupendously supercalifragilistically magnificently awesome! Thanks God! You rock!!!
