"You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up."

Deuteronomy 6:5-7

A Trip to the Alligator Park


This post is mainly for my sister, who just moved to Texas and doesn’t share our love and acceptance of alligators here in the south.

We have a beautiful national park, not that far from our home, Brazos Bend State Park. I love going there for the long winding trails and quiet. My boys like going there to get up close and personal with some local alligators. Yes, we consider it fun to walk around a pond and look for those large, jagged toothed creatures. Could they cause us serious bodily harm? Sure, but so could riding in the car!

Here’s proof that spotting alligators, in God’s creation, is wonderful!


This guy was just hanging out, not far from the trail.


There are so many beautiful trails, the boys love riding their bikes along them.



See, beautiful isn’t it? And for those who don’t enjoy spotting alligators, the turtles are pretty fun to watch as well.

The babies enjoy strolling along in the stroller but even Austin got out to play for a while.


These photos were taken on a gorgeous day in January. I’d love to go back now that the flowers are in bloom and the trees are full. Watch out Lindsey, I’m planning your next trip soon!
