On one of our evening strolls this week, we were greeted by an incredibly beautiful sunset. The air was cool, fresh and had an earthy smell to it. The sounds of the park were just incredible – From kiddos chasing each other around the many play structures to the sounds of the bocci ball courts; it sounded like everyone at the park was having an absolute blast at the Waterfront Park! We gratefully soaked in the sounds, smells, and sights of our awesome new hometown.

Once we were on our way home we happened upon a mother deer and her two fawns snacking on the grasses of the Waterbird Regional Preserve. Mark, Cici and I watched them quietly so that we wouldn’t disrupt them but as soon as the mama deer saw us they all sprinted away.
