An Evening on the Riverwalk, Part Two

I love taking walks, especially on warm spring nights. We've had way too few of those this year, but last Friday was a gorgeous night. Greg, Nick, and I spent maybe an hour walking around the Riverwalk. I love this picture because it looks like Nick is trying to grab the light.

Do you see how nicely Nick is holding his daddy's hand in the picture below? I was impressed as I huffed and puffed twenty feet back. As soon as I have this kid, I need to get in shape. I miss having the energy to walk miles at a time without getting tired.

The fountains at the Riverwalk are a favorite with Nick.

We walked for awhile, looking at the ducks and playing in the fountains. Nick loved running around and around this fountain. He would have gone swimming if we'd have let him.

When it was time to go, Greg went to get the car and I let Nick run around the pavillion. It's a pretty enclosed area, so he couldn't escape. He ran the entire time, and loved looking at the ducks and geese.

Nick looked up, at one point, and saw birds nesting at the top of the pavillion. "Are we in the birdy's house?" he asked? This boy likes birds.

Nick also kept referring to this large red abstract sculpture. When we walked past it, Nick tried to climb on it, and Greg read the sign to him. "This sign says, "Get off the sculpture." Signs must be important to Nick, because he left it alone. Then, when we were on the pavillion, he kept pointing to it and calling it by what he thought was its name. "That is the "Get Off Sculpture!"" he announced. Yup. It is. That sculpture has a new name.  :)  It will henceforth be known as the "Get Off Sculpture."
