An Afternoon at White Rock Lake

A few weeks ago, we had a glorious Sunday afternoon on our hands and absolutely no plans. So we decided it would be the perfect time to feed the ducks at White Rock Lake. 

After some quick research, I found that Sunset Bay would be the best place to spot some ducks. (Click here for a map of the lake.) So off we went for a little adventure.

There was plenty of parking, and we didn't have to walk too far before spotting lots of ducks and geese.

Ava was a little frustrated that the ducks wouldn't come up super close.

But she threw that bread as far and as hard as she could :).

It was such a gorgeous day!

Of course, it was only after going through several pieces of bread that we noticed the "Please Don't Feed the Water Fowl" sign. Whooooops. 

Sunset Bay also offered picnic tables, a little playground, and plenty of open space for Ava to run around and fly the kite we brought. (I was trying to keep Rylan in the shade, so I couldn't get a closer shot of them in action.)

 Just as we were about ready to head home, we heard the sound of an approaching ice cream truck. Since it was Ava's first encounter with this magical childhood institution, she was a little overwhelmed with all the choices.

She ultimately went with the "Pink Panther," and was very pleased with her choice.

Sunday afternoons don't get much better than this.

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing instead. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; The Bar Method; pajamas; La Croix; reading; coffee; podcasts; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; snoring; bad hair days; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and Miracle Whip. I think that about sums it up.
