After I checked out Shoal Creek running through downtown with my girlfriend, I went back with my girls. I’m glad I checked it out first, because there are some funky parts that need extra care. My girls loved the funky parts, especially the railroad bridge. (Sparkles is doing some kind of dance move here, I’m not sure which one exactly.)
Here is a picture of them when they both threw a fit at the same time. That makes hiking less fun, when they throw a tantrum and you really do need to get home for dinner. But, I figure that this will happen other places too and we always manage to make it back to the car eventually. For this one, I just waited. I win the waiting game on most days.
