Mayfield Park-Austin, Texas

The weather in South Central, Texas has been just lovely all spring break.  So the girls and I ventured outside of our little town today, and headed up the road to Austin. Austin is an awesome city with amazing hidden treasures.  We went to Mayfield Park and Nature Preserve.  It was spectacular!  The park is surrounded by a stone wall with little wrought iron gates.  When you go in through the gates there are stone lined ponds, little pathways surrounded by flowers, and peacocks.  Absolutely breathtaking peacocks.  The girls and I had such an amazing time watching the birds.  Some were up high in trees and others were just beautifully walking around their little home.  In the back of the park there were additional gates and each one lead to a different trail through the nature preserve.  We had some much fun exploring, climbing rock formations, crossing creeks on over sized rocks, and listening for wildlife.  The temperature outside was just perfect.  We could not have asked for a more lovely day.
