silent sunday: paynes prairie preserve, micanopy, florida

Paynes Prarie Preserve State Park is one of our local gems. Nestled between Gainesville and Micanopy, the prairie is over 22,000 acres and contains amazing wildlife, including alligators, wild horses, bison, and numerous bird species. This trail, the one we walked on this last Saturday in December, is the La Chua Trail. We capped off our 5 mile hike with dinner and drinks at Satchel’s Pizza.

It was a most perfect Saturday.

    I spent one of the best days at Disney with my son when he was 12. I’ll never forget it. You guys look like you had a blast. I love the picture of your beautiful kids hugging!

    I’m glad your Mom read the comments from your prior post. Perhaps when she is having a tough day, she can come back and read them again and be reminded that she has a lot of understanding and support behind her and maybe that day will get a little better for her.
    Your photos of your trip to Disney are wonderful. You have a beautiful family! I especially love the picture of your daughter with Belle (I think it’s Belle from Beauty and the Beast) Her face is so sweet, a little bit in awe and a little bit shy. Glad you enjoyed your time there.
