Tuesday morning turned out to be a pretty morning, with a fog that rolled in over the city. I thought it might make for some nice photos, so I decided to take the kids for a walk in a beautiful Austin park. At this park (Mayfield Park), many peacocks roam freely. I decided to make our trip a school lesson on peacocks, which also made the little road trip multi-functional.
By the time we got to the park (hello early morning Austin traffic), the fog had moved on. But, the cloud cover still remained, so it was a perfect photo opportunity. However, one thing I didn't think about was the potential difficulty of watching two excited children around many little ponds of water, while attempting to take photographs. So, I didn't get a ton of pictures. I was happy to get a few though to remember our little experience this morning. We'll plan our next visit to this beautiful mark on a weekend, when Drew will come along.
|Hello Mr. Peacock!|
|Come on down and visit with us, Mr. Peacock!|
|Reflecting at one of the ponds.|
|Looking at the fish.|
|Abbey didn't want to give up on getting inside though. Here, she is looking for me to help her out and saying, "uh-oh!"|
|Luke found a peacock feather and didn't want to put it down. I used to love finding feathers as a child. Now, they are so gross to me! Here, he is showing me how big he is (so big that he can touch both sides of the walkway wall)!|
|Looking over a ledge. Don't worry, once I snapped this photo of Abbey attempting to climb up it, the camera went down and we left the area.|
|I love how Abbey is squatting so lady-like in this photo.|
|Bye-bye Mr. Peacock!|
I thought that I would be in the clear since my doctor removed my restrictions and said everything looked awesome. However, I guess the healing process may still not be a "walk in the park". Last night, I noticed blood on my bra where I had the emergency surgery a couple of weeks ago (and where the stitches were removed on Monday). The incision is covered mostly by steri-strip tape, but there is a tiny area that is not currently covered. I can tell that the bleeding is seeping along the entire incision though. Apparently, the incision wasn't completely sealed together when the surgeon removed my stitches. So, I guess I am back to trying to take it easy. I plan on contacting my doctor to see if there is anything else I need to do, or if he recommends I visit a wound car clinic once again. It's the silly radiation that is keeping my skin on the left breast area from healing. That skin may just need a little extra assistance in healing.
