houston, texas: buffalo bayou park

This past weekend we ventured down to the Buffalo Bayou Running/Nature Trail and Park. It's probably one of my favorites in the city! We hadn't been down that way for a while, and I'm so glad we did...because it was the perfect day!

 It's currently under construction--they have some AMAZING plans for it. Check out their site here--it really is going to be stunning.

One of the new additions is the Police Memorial (picture below) How cool is that?! I love this artsy side of Houston :)
  This park has a little bit of everything! Running/biking trails, a nature path, art/sculptures, dog park, a crazy cool skyline view, and the bayou! 

I had no idea all the renovations and additions that are happening. They're even adding an events center that you can rent for private events! And I haven't done this yet, but while we were there we saw people kayaking down the bayou and it looked like so much fun. 
Has anyone done that? I'd love to hear about it!
M's favorite part of the park was the big grassy area. Now that she's walking she LOVES wide open spaces with plenty of room to go and go and go!
Probably my favorite picture from the whole day. Nothing better, nothing sweeter, and nothing more precious than the relationship between a father and his daughter. I love these two. 
We plan on doing a lot of Houston based activities over the summer months. We really do love our home. We love this city, and we like showing it off. Lately I've realized that people don't appreciate Houston like they should. 

Yes, yes we're a known for being a very industrial, hot, humid, extremely flat city and while that might all be true...we're also full of cultural, some of the world's yummiest food, impressive museums, beautiful parks, great shopping, and fun destinations!

I love Houston, love this little family of mine and am so grateful for them both!

XOXO
